    Dosal, I didn't even realize you grew these. Which ones do you grow? And which ones stay small? Thanks-

    I have comorense, eburnum superbum, Lemforde White Beauty, Longiscott "Lea", leonis, and sesquipedale 'Orchidglade II' x Sesquipedale 'March'
    So far the sequipedale and the Longiscott have bloomed for me repeatedly.
    Leonis will stay small as far as I know.

    Hi Dosal!

    as a newbie i decided to buy a small (4 in tall x 7 in wide) Lemforde 'White Beauty' too... could you give me some of the main culture tips to get along with it? It's not easy to find it on the net!

    thanks.

    Hi Dosal, could you give me some advise on the leonis? I have one and it has not been doing well. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I have it hang with the vandas which I water every day in summer, is that too much for the leonis? It always gets a brown leave and it falls off but then a new one comes but the plant does not look healthy. I think I will loose it if I do not change something. Can you help with any advice? I would really appreciate it.

    I grow my Angm. leonis in bark in a 4 " clay pot. It is outside during the summer under 50 % shade cloth. (about 3500-4000 ft candles of light) I water it about every 4 days during the summer if it hasn't rained. It has bloomed the past two winters. You are probably giving yours too much water and maybe too much light. I grow my vandas in 4-5 thousand ft. candles of light. (40% shade cloth) (In South Louisiana) I love angraecums. Good luck.......

    You probably should start a new thread and include photos so that other people could help.
