    I read that leptotes is more closely related to Loefgrenianthus, and I like the Blanche-amesiae species , but it seems opposite as far as its needs are to the Leptotes, also mentioning much harder to grow. I want to keep the ornamental miniature feel to this piece

    Aahhh... well, we all have our different ideas of what is beautiful! That's what makes the orchid world so fun! There's so much variety you can find nearly any shape!

    I don't know anything about Loefgrenianthus or Blanche-amesiae... but I'm sure you'll come up with a brilliant pairing, and one that suits your tastes best. Make sure you let us know what you decide! Inquiring minds want to know....

    I'd like to get one of those too... they're adorable little orchids!! Did you find a source for one at a good price? If not, pm me and I can perhaps help you in your search.

    Pavel, I would recommend boiling the driftwood from the pet store anyway. I put a piece of Malaysian driftwood from the pet store in my aquarium and it leached tannins, discoloring the water and also lowering the Ph. I boiled it for several hours and now it's fine.
