Lepanthes ingridiana

Lepanthes ingridiana is a rare species from Ecuador whose flowers are some of the largest in the genus.  The plant itself is also quite large for the genus, 15-20 cm tall.  It bears a single 6 cm leaf on an upright stem with the typical bracts of a Lepanthes and flowers that would be 8 cm long if laid flat.  The plants are native to Ecuador and Columbia and come from higher elevations.  They require cool temperatures in cultivation.  My plant is grown in sphagnum moss in a plastic pot.

I've also added a few other pictures on black and taken at an earlier date that I had not posted before.
