    Thanks. I just love this plant. Its size has made it somewhat difficult to handle though and it fell to the ground some months ago when I watered it. Luckily only a few buds were damaged.

    Wow. That plant really loves you. What a marvel! Can it be entered again for judging?

    Thanks. Yes this is a good one. But it is easy to grow. It grows very slowly and needs to be mounted but anyone with some interest can get good results with Leptotes bicolor. This particular plant of mine suffered a lot when I had to move between states and from apartments to our current house in Maryland. But it didn't let me down.

    You can enter any plant for judging again if the current inflorescence or inflorescences haven't been subject to judging before. AOS even encourages taking plants back for judging for cultural awards. So if a plant didn't receive a cultural award even though it had the potential, just take it back one or two years later. In my case I will take it back for judging in a couple of years to see if I can get a CCE (certificate of cultural excellence), which is the best award any grower can get for culture.

    Spectacular flowering and incredible plant, mine is much, much smaller and younger, but still gives me great satisfaction, thanks for sharing it.
