    Cool Leptotes bicolor

    I've been waiting for this one to open a flower and while I was busy yesterday it opened 3. There are many more buds to open so I will re-post when it is fully bloomed.

    Hi Connie - beautiful leptotis! Phillip has one mounted just like yours, but it's smaller and hasn't had as many blooms. Can you describe your culture for it? How much light does it get? Water? Misting? Does it bloom freely or just once a year? How long have you had it and how old do you think it is? Thanks.

    I have had this plant since August of last year. It arrived blooming size, although my new pbulbs are longer by an inch or two. It hangs in the vanda section and gets watered and fertilized right along with them as well. They must have regular spraying for fungal/bacterial infections (I spray weekly) and need a ton of air movement. I don't know how regular it blooms yet...as this is my first blooming. It arrived with potential buds but they dried out and until recently it did nothing but grow new pbulbs. As far as sun levels, I keep this on the low end of vanda light, which is still very bright.
