    Wow, that's great! Beautiful photos, too, your parental comparison shot is really fantastic.

    Yes, thank you. Even if the telipo. picture is not very nice, we can easily seen the influence of the both taxons : small petal for telipo, large petal for estrellensis, and large sepals telipo. et small one with estrellensis is clearly a mix of the both ! the lip is also very curious . I should do more pictures of this gem .

    I think your photo superbly illustrates the minute details of telipogoniflora's petals and lip, not usually so noticeable in pictures (nor to the naked eye). And very relevant to the photo's purpose of showing how the hybrid combines genes from each parent. I'd love to see more pictures of this and your other lepanthes hybrids, they all look pretty amazing.

    with all respect this cross is not as nice as any of the parents, looks very ordinary and lost both parents unusual futures... still well done!

    Yes that's true, many of small details disappears in the cross, the fantastic denticulate telipogoniflora structure lip disappear, the petal are bigger yes but they are nicer and more curvy on the original estrellensis. It's like that, I can't do nothing against unfortunately :) I was thinking to do the opposite cross estrellensis X telipogoniflora maybe if I have pollen .
