    It has a great flower. I just have trouble with such a big Lepanthes plant.

    My plant is 11" tall and each flower is 1/2". The plant produces flowers from each leaf and stays in bloom for a long time. I find it magnificent. Larger than most Lepanthes species, as Marni said, but not the largest one I own. For example, Lepanthes ligiae or L. nicolasii are much bigger and not as spectacular.
