O/C you know you have one...LOL. Lepanthes is a great genus to have and it can be very addictive...but not many can grow them successfully.

I actually have a lot of Lepanthes in that tank that I’ve lost count. Some die and some live. I just fill each empty spot with new ones. That’s why I have no idea as I don’t keep track.

Interesting flower. Is it rather stinky? I remember sticking my nose in a Lepanthes in Selby Gardens and pulled back
quickly. I suspect it's pollinated by flies.
Hmmm I did not smell anything but may be time of day. When I was in Colombia I saw many in the trips but none were foul smelling. Maybe I'm a fly lol.
