Product information "Lepanthes myiophora"

even though the name Lepanthes myiophora in translation refers to blowflies, there is no connection for us with the name apart from the shiny surface of the flowers. The plants produce small, non-scented flowers that can bloom succesively for a short time lying on the leaves.
