    I love Lepanthes but I must say, I have killed mine. I think I am not keeping them humid/moist enough. They are incredible little plants and, oh my, what a wonderful little blossom.. Very nice Branka and beautiful photos....

    Nice species, Branka. It is one of my many favorite orchids and the foliage is the best of it.

    Very pretty indeed.
    Are they hard to grow? Easy to get?
    Never saw anything like it with any grower out here.

    That is really cool, Branka. I love the leaves and the tiny blooms.

    Cheers,

    Rudy,
    this plant comes from wet montane forest in Western Colombia and Ecuador and can bloom at any time of the year with tiny, 8 mm wide successive single flowers.
    Can be grown in intermediate to warm conditions; needs a partial shade, constantly moist media and high humidity. If you can provide such conditions, it will grow well.
