    This is a neat tiny little species from Costa Rica. I think it's related to Lepanthes, it has the same leaf sheaths (Lepanthiform sheaths). The new leaves look like a watermelon on the bottom, with 3 red stripes on it. These are the best pictures I could get of it.

    Don't worry guys, this plant grows pretty fast...there'll be enough to go around in a year or 2...but the highest bidder can have a piece right now ;) ;) ;)...no, just kidding, not quite yet
