    They are beautiful, both of them. How big are the flowers?

    The flowers are somewhat large for Lepanthes. Escobariana flowers are about 2 cm, while the flowers of nicolasii are somewhat smaller at 1-1.5 cm. No need for a magnifying glass to enjoy these!

    Naoki,

    They are grown under lights in a 55 gallon aquarium that is housed in my basement and equipped with a fogging unit and humidistat. During the winter, temperatures are fairly constant at about 60 degrees. Daytime highs during the summer will hit 75 or so.
