I missed this project but just found the thread while poking around the forums. As it happens a couple of days ago I acquired a very small L. bicolor from Schwerter. It came mounted on this little clay slab.

I think I'll just keep it mounted and see how it does. Perhaps nights in a terrarium rigged from a glass flower vase with water on the bottom and glass plate on top to keep the humidity higher.

Never too late to jump onto a project. It's fun comparing growth rates, flowering, etc with other growers. The fact is the few months you are behind the rest of us is irrelevant.

Good luck and keep us up to date on what you are doing, what works and what doesn't, etc.

we got the same, but i think you beat us on smallness! but, per usual with schwerter, the plant adapted well and is still green. hard to tell if itís growing ( it is, but slowly)

Here is an update on my L. pohlitinicoi. The first image is the day it was purchased back in May.

Second is the same angle taken today. It turns out this is two plants side by side. Notice the newer leaves on each.

Third is a side view showing another new leaf and what may be a future inflorescence on the largest leaf.

hey leptomaniacs, quick ?,

is this possibly what i think it might be? and if so, perhaps we have a problem, as i thought these bloomed in late winter/spring? according to aos, there is also unicolor which blooms in fall....maybe we got one of those mislabeled?

for sure, if it is in fact a spike it will probly die off, but i am now worried that we are confusing this thing and thatís never good.

in s/h since we joined the project. same weak/week ferts and conditions as phals. thanks for any input!

Can't see what you're seeing... I wouldn't expect flowers this time of year from Leptotes bicolor (though orchids can surprise us...), but new growth likely. There ARE other Leptotes species that bloom in the fall or winter. So you'll just have to wait and see. Patience.

ah, yeah, sorry for the lofi pic

but, if u look at the base of the top center leaf, top of the pbulb, there is a small green shoot. a couple days ago i almost attacked it cause i thought it was a mealy bug at first, but after closer inspection it seemed greenish and fleshy, so i let it be. itís been growing over the last 2 days. according to what ive read and seen online, this is where spikes come from. the new growth we saw this summer also emerged from the base of the bulbs/from the media. 🤷*♀️

Flowers do come from the base of the growths. I suspect that it is a new growth. Which is good. More flowers in the spring.

Because I'm a hopeless enabler.
