    Default Lepanthopsis astrophora 'Stalky'

    Wonderful species - this cultivar is named for G.C.K. "Stalky" Dunsterville, skilled amateur orchidist whose contribution to our understanding of Venezuelan orchids cannot be overestimated.
    This is one of the showiest of the "smaller" pleurothallids. Very easy to grow.

    One of the "classic" pleurothallids. I had a keiki of this probably 25 years ago.

    Gorgeous little flower - and what great photography too! Also, one of the things I really love about the little cloud forest guys is the ability to grow moss with them - they look so natural that way, no matter what they are growing on/in.
