    Lepanthes larvina - Colombia. Flower 4 mm. Found this species in Choco on a huge fallen tree. Seems to grow high up on the main trunk of the tree.

    The leaf is a great shape and coloring. Thanks for the wonderful images, too.

    Pontus, thanks for the post.

    Growing up high, do you think it can tolerate (or need) more light than some other Lepanthes?
