    One of my smaller orchids, having its best bloom ever this fall: Lepanthopsis astrophora 'Stalky.' Easy grower. I started this from a single keiki four years ago. Grown I/C with high humidity under bright light, a few inches from the LED bulbs inside my cool tank.

    Yeah, I tried a keiki potted in sphagnum. It lasted a month. I found it prefers to be mounted with no moss, sprayed daily, and drying out in between.

    Wow, what a beautiful grown species. According to your growing description, it could fit in my growing area. [emoji106]
