    Cool Leptotes bicolor and Seidiera japonica

    My Leptotes bicolor is in bloom again. The plant was hung high in the greenhouse over the winter so the plant is quite pale and freckled. It must have enjoyed it as the flower count this year is really nice. Usually I only get one flower to open at a time...three at the most. The Seidiera japonica is a newer plant that was in spike when I bought it. The flowers do have a scent, but not the most pleasant. I need to look up how to repot it...since I am spending my days breaking fingernails repotting and digging bugs out of nooks and crannies. I didn't keep up spraying after surgery and I have alot of work to do to catch up. Gotta say...I love it! lol

    Nice flowers, Connie! Surprised to hear your take on the scent of Seideria -- I've always heard that it has a rather lemony scent. Hmm, guess next time I see one I'll have to try and catch a whiff myself.

    Those are lovely, and they complement each other so well.

    Very nice growing, I just received a very small division of the Leptotes bicolor, it is in a tinny pot. Do you think it is better to be mounted?

    So far this one seems to like being mounted. It is on a small tree fern placque that hangs with my vandas. I keep mine pretty high up so they get a ton of sun and the same water/fertilizer schedule as the vandas they are hanging with.
