General Information and Care: Lepanthes telipogoniflora is in direct competition with L. calodictyon as far as the favorite species that Glass Box Tropicals offers. The leaves on this species are a rather mundane green and small. However, as soon as this species goes into flower, it cannot be ignored. It has relatively large, almost ½" or even slightly over ½" in diameter iridescent orange and yellow flowers. Often times the flowers appear to almost shimmer under fluorescent and LED lighting. It will do best mounted epiphytically and kept in very high humidity. Also, it seems to prefer little to no air movement to do best.
