    Default Lepanthopsis astrophora

    The pot is about 4 cm in diameter; the blossoms are about 2.5 mm across.

    I did not realize it could bloom from older spikes. Looks like about 6 open or on the way.

    That’s an adorable plant Ray. A new acquaintance to me but something that I would like to see in my collection.

    I did not know that you are into pleurothallids, Ray.
    I still have a few, but anything needing a magnifying glass is of dwindling interest to my old eyes.

    Me either! However, now that my growing space is really limited, tiny plants are a "plus".

    It and mounted Schoenorchis fragrans and Phalaenopsis parishii occupy a glass vase "terrarium" on my desk - 8" diameter x 12" high.

    It is tiny and perfect, Ray. I need some little ones like this for my orchidarium. I love the vibrant color!

    cheers,
