Lepanthes escobariana

Here is Lepanthes escobariana once again.  One of my favorite Lepanthes, it is easy to grow and the flower spikes produce flowers successively over a very long period of time so that the plant is always in bloom with very large flowers for the size of the plant.  It comes from Colombia and is named for a Colombian orchid grower, Rodrigo Escobar.  The flowers are about 2 cm tall and are arranged on long wiry spikes that grow from the leaf-base of single-leaved growths about 3-4 cm tall.
