    Default Lepanthes elegantula

    Nice "big" Lepanthes species. One of the most popular of the genus because of the showy flowers and how easy it is to grow and bloom. It is a sequential bloomer, and a well-grown plant can be in bloom all year long.

    I like the deep, dramatic color. The stems, spikes, and flowers are most interesting. I also think that its being easy to grow and bloom is a real plus.
