Lepanthropsis astrophora question
Default Lepanthropsis astrophora question

I have several Lepanthropsis astrophora that I've gotten from different sources. Most look about the same but 2 of them are extremely tiny. 1 third to half the size of the other plants. I don't think it's a difference in age since I have had one of the large and one of the tiny ones for about the same amount of time and they've grown considerably....become bushier but no change in leaf size or plant height. I've done a bunch of internet searching and reading but haven't found any information on differences within the species. I have seen references to "stalky" though and thought that might be a nickname for the larger variety of the plant. Can anyone please explain any of this to me?

In what medium are they pot into it?

The fact with the Lepans is that they can grow and flower very different even getting the same care.

Do you have a picture ?

As far as I know, the only cultivar of L. astrophora available in the hobby is "Stalky". Some people don't bother putting the "Stalky" in because it's sort of implied.

Got any pics?
