Lepanthes tibouchinicola – In situ Colombia

September 19, 2014

Lepanthes tibouchinicola Luer & R.Escobar 1983

Found this Lepanthes species in the mountains south of Jardin, Colombia. The plants were growing on Tibouchina sp at an elevation of 2600-2800 meters. This is a very wet area with dense cloud forest and were I found the plants the trees were growing to max 8 meters. I don´t know if this species grow on other host trees species other than Tibouchina sp? The host trees has a very paper like bark.

Me and a Lepanthes tibouchinicola plant at around 2700 meters. Mountains south of Jardin, Colombia.
