    This forum really is the tops. I spend so many hours pouring over lists, from dealers who are coming to the next major show in Uk - direct importing from the rest of the world used to be OK but is now an absolute no-no - would you believe I have to pay £59 = US$96 for the permit for each genus... meaning if I could find a dealer to supply me with one of each of these beauties now added by Tom, it would cost me US$300 for the permits, plus the plants, plus the air-freight, and our rapacious customs would then charge me 50% duty on the value of the parcel, and after adding that on, charge 20% sales tax on that total...so that $10 plants and a few stamps on the parcel would cost me $200 per plant. Sorry, end of rant - I get so cross about this stupid bureaucracy. What I started to say here, before being carried away by my sense of injustice, is that this forum is giving me a short cut to finding jewels to add to my collection if and when I can get them.
    Whatever - all three go on my wish list - here's one you might not know - not actually out at the moment - I just thought of it since I am today moving the plant from a pot to an epiweb plaque which I think might suit it. Chamaengis harriottiana - those flowers are a full 3mm across.

    I didn't know that Leptotes ; I've only met two of them - the one best known over here is L.bicolor ; here's my plant, earlier this year.

    Hey Branka your Lepanthes looks like a little red insect ... a fly or an ant maybe?

    Really cool!

    Lepanthes calodictyon has been on my wishlist for a while now. Ah someday perhaps!

    Nice color on those Chamaengis harriottiana flowers
