Common Name Jenny's Lepanthes

Flower Size

Found in south central Costa Rica at elevations around 3000 meters as a miniature sized, cold growing epiphyte that blooms in the late summer through early winter. Some authorities place this as a synonym of Lepanthes grandiflora with which there are similarities, but I will leave them separate as they appear to be different in some aspects.
