    It pays to scroll ALL the way down, here I am looking for a pic on the next windows tab and can't find one. Oh well ... let's read the rest of the post and BAM ! An awesome pic. What a cool little plant.

    Swords, My knowledge of orchids is little teo none, but as far as I know yes..... the "alliance" seems to include quite a few SA cloud forest species.

    P.S.
    A little birdie has told me that a well known and highly respected TF member may have some available later this year.
    I'm hoping she does, till then I'm saving my pennies

    Yes; it's in the Pleurothallid alliance. I didn't realize Lepanthes is such a big genus - it has more than 800 species. At least until the taxonomists attack and send species scurrying every which way. Do you have any other orchids?

    Bruce, not really... just the occasional mercy purchase at Lowe's or Wally World. I just never really caught orchid fever. But these miniature Lepanthes have indeed captured my interest, I've purchased a very large glass container and clay cylinder with a Lepanthes nano-vivarium in mind.

    Example

    Wow those tubes are awesome! Reminds me of the little jungles my uncle used to have growing in all sorts of jars when I was a kid. There are two wires going into each container, one I can see is a fan, is the other to a water pump that circulates the water in the bottom over the mossy "stumps"?

    Pleurothallids are my favorite of any of the orchids, because they're so weird!

    If you ever get spares....

    They're very cool (one of my fave families of orchid) but so many are truly minuscule. At the annual MN Orchid Society show in January each Pleurothallid growers booth has a selection of reading glasses, jewelers loupes and big magnifying glasses!
