    This is a primary hybrid between Lepanthes calodictyon and Lepanthes telipogoniflora. I really enjoy the plant because you can clearly see the influence of each of the parents in both the flowers and foliage, which isn't always the case.

    I grow this plant in my small, indoor greenhouse right next to Lepanthes telipogoniflora (which is flowering remarkably right now) which grows in low-medium light (dappled) and warm conditions. They tend to receive more light during autumn and winter due to the trees in the front yard dropping their leaves and allowing more sunshine to enter the window. The humidity stays between 85-99%.

    You have a spelling error in the name, would you like me to correct it? Her name is Bridygham.

    Done. This isn't the only typo I've corrected today. A customer pointed one out on my website this morning.

    Marni, am I alone in imagining the details of the Ecuagenera and Sherry interactions for naming this? She’s always fasniating to listen to.

    I didn't hear anything specific. I know that she has helped them a lot over the years working the booth, setting up the exhibit and having them as house guests.
