This is a discussion on Leptotes bicolor and Seidiera japonica within the Orchids of Other Genera IN BLOOM forums, part of the Orchid Photography category; My Leptotes bicolor is in bloom again. The plant was hung high in the greenhouse ...
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
I'll add three more pictures in the next post.....
Both wonderful species and I love the fragrance of the Seideria. Very nice!
Beautiful. Love the lip of Sedirea japonica.
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.
Connie they are both lovely, just love how that Leptote has attached it self to the mount.
Very nice Connie I love both of them!
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?
