    It didnt open up any further than that photo..there is still 2-3 buds on the plant so one of them better open up. S. brunnea is still amazing, almost always blooming for me too.

    And another bloom.
    L. Calodictylon

    Good choice, Mike. It looks like you have added another Lepanthes to your collection lately. In that group of Lepanthes, calodictyon is my favorite. You can just grow it for the foliage.
    People used to post this species quite often then it stopped. Perhaps it is time for an update now...

    I love it too! My calo's leaves never seem to be round and flat, they're more oval, perhaps I need to give it a bit more light.

    I doubt you need to give it more light. How is the constant humidity?

    It's actually in a little terrarium so the humidity is constant and very high.

    Interesting situation, Zach. Do you have L. tentaculata also? My L. tentaculata rarely has flat leaves, and it grows side by side with my L. calodictyon under identical culture.

    No just the calo. Perhaps it's a similar species just mislabeled?!?

    Some clones are just like that. I had one that was always a bit cupped, but it was still calodictyon. I find this much less sensitive to the humidity changes that L telipogoniflora.

    Update for mine ... dead :( On one of my extended trips my waterer didn't see it hidden down in its shady spot.

    I suspect it is one of the reason why we don't see people post this species again. You can always try it again, Kelly.:D

    Well done! After the first couple of photos I was curious how you managed to grow all those in the mid-west. But a tank--that explains it. They look very good.

    Thanks... Despite my user name, I am actually on the east coast, but yes, I grow all of my plants in a tank.

    Lepanthopsis melanantha..not sure if this is fully open or on its way closed as it had these spikes for a while, but I never payed attention until now.
