Lepanthes calodictyon is a tiny plant but very desirable especially for its foliage, though the tiny flowers are also very intricate and colorful. It is from Colombia and Ecuador and the plant is about 5 cm tall with leaves 3 cm in diameter and flowers that are only 8 mm. The species name refers to the net-patterned leaves. I have trouble growing this with my cool-growing plants and am growing it now in a warmer area in a small terrarium.
