    Hello, purchased this plant from Ecuagenera as Lepanthes clareae. It has just bloomed and does not really look like L. clareae in my opinion. Any thoughts on what it could be?

    Do you have a picture of the whole plant?

    I think that is what we've been widely circulating as L. clareae. I agree, it doesn't quite match the type drawing (IOSPE PHOTOS). This version (species?) seems to keiki really frequently as well.

    Interesting. Potentially it could just be a variable species? And yes, this version keikis like crazy.
