    Default Species Orchid from Puerto Rico

    Hi all. A student who knew I am into orchids brought a photo to me. While on tour in Puerto Rico this student's mom and dad where shown an orchid. Their guide told them that is one of the 'smallest orchids in the world.' Well, after seeing some of the blooms posted here, I know that is not true, but when she asked me what the name of the orchid is, I told her that I would post it here and see if anyone knows. So, does this orchid ring any bells with anyone? Thanks!

    It's a Lepanthes but I don't know which one but a pretty one it is! Browse through Jay's site and you might be able to ID it.

    Your quite welcome

    Let us know if you find the ID...I would be interested in knowing it's name. Lepanthes are cool species, and one can have a considerable sized collection of them in a small space.

    I think it's a Lepanthes woodburyana. They grow in El Yunque Rainforest.
