How nice to get a second spike on this. This one looks great!! Very cute! Lovey dubby

My Lepanthopsis astrophora 'Stalky' has been spiking and I am seeing ( with magnifying glass) a few open blooms.
Observe the penny stuck into the bark as size comparison!! The blooms are in the mm range.
I bought the tiny plant last March at the SEPOS and it seems I can keep this mounted plant easier alive than a previous plant which was in a tiny pot.
This one gets some extra humidity, hanging over the fish tank.

I just bought my first Lepanthes and can't wait to see it. Do they bloom whenever? Or in spring?

Nice Ursula. I'm beginning to get too old to see anything that small. Good idea with the magnifying glass. My wife would think I was really round the bend if I started that. Rolling on the floor laughing

Thanks Bill.
When I show my husband minis like that I give him the magnifying glass right along with it. Sure - we both can see it as is, but we don't want to miss the nice details on those tiny blooms. Smiling
Actually, in this case I placed the magnifying glass right on the lens ( gently, to let the lens focus) of the camera, to get a decent picture.

Kathy, about the Lepanthes and their bloom season -
The couple of plants Andy posted are supposed to be always in bud or bloom.
Orchidspecies.com lists most of them blooming in the Spring, a few in Winter.

I have Platystele stenostachya - blooms like crazy almost year around, rarely taking a break; it only slows down in Summer if it is too hot. Right now it is just covered with spikes and blooms.
Platystele umbellata produces several flushes of cute little "raspberries" throughout the year, but I think my main blooming was usually inside.( have to check)
Platystele ovatlabia has bloomed for me for several seasons straight out, this Winter it decided to simply put on growth and it is covering the mount. Surely next indoor season it will start up again, since the plant is really healthy.
I grow all of them warm and water daily with rain water. All three grow mounted, but I have a second umbellata plant which also grows very nicely potted in CHC.

Thanks Ursula. This little guy is P. ximenae. It's mounted and out of the sun on the inside of my shelves and it gets lots of water daily. Hope it's happy. http://bit.ly/eG35XA

Gotta love the moustache! Hilarious! Lovey dubby
My Leptotes bicolor is a bit slower than yours. The Stenia is really sweet.

I bought this one some time ago labeled as Bulbophyllum makoyanum. Googling it - I am not so sure!
The plant is on the smallish site, bordering on mini. Whatever it is, it's a cutie.

Tuberolabium woodii, picked up a couple of years ago from Cal Orchids. I am glad it is still alive and the little blooms are just as deliciously fragrant as the other Tuberolabiums. Scent is in the direction of sweet, perfumed Almond paste!
