    This is a plant I got from Marni. It seems to always have a flower open.

    Nice species. I like close up and macro photos.

    Hi William
    Great macro shots but looks like Lep. saltatix to me, tentaculata has a round leaf and shorter leaf stems. your plant has a distinctive hart shaped leaf and long petioles.

    I agree with you, Mike. Last night, I was going to express my opinion on this plant but I figured I said enough on this group of Lepanthes here...

    Nice photos, Bill.
