    Beautiful Lepanthes I got in Februari this year. It had a difficult time this summer in my garden, but she survived and is in bloom now. Love the the colors and the greenish hairy petals. Also nice patterned leaves.

    I've failed with this a few times, but after seeing your beautiful images I will try it again.

    You should. It’s a lovely species. Several years ago I saw a picture of it in “Compendium miniature Orchid Species” and fall in love with it. The green lip, the big, fat, hairy greenish petals. Against a brownish yellow background.!! Fantastic.
    I hope I will be able to cultivate it for several years
