    Intermediate grower.
    Most of the Lepanthes grower will have one just for the foliage. The flower is just a bonus.

    Cheers,

    It is not a cool grower but it does need 70%+ humidity year round and good water. Once in a while, you can get this species from one or two S. American growers when they come to U.S. for shows.
