    One of my favorites. This clone is from Phil Jesup and the flowers are a bit under 1/2" tall. I recently learned that it grows cool and wet. I have another clone purchased from Ecuagenera, but can't find a image right now to compare.

    I really love it .
    I would like to grow it ...
    did you try to make seed ? I have plenty empty flask and I will love to propagate it in-vitro .......

    J-M, I haven't yet tried to pollinate any lepanthes. I have a hard time seeing the details, let alone finding the pollinia.;)

    I'll come over with some needles sometime. I can see the necessary parts.

    It's easy but you should know little about Lepanthes morphology and have lens and/or good eyes .
    I do it often and it's not difficult the most difficult is after.
    So if you do that I will do the next and sterile job ...... :)

    I've got the lens and I'm sure I'll give it a try at some point. There was an article floating around a couple of years ago on pollination of lepanthes. I don't remember if it was in a magazine or a pdf. Does anyone know? I would love to raise lepanthes from seed.
