Has anyone grown Leptotes bicolor before? Would you say it has similar needs to B. nodosa?

Leptotes bicolor can't take nearly as much sun as B. nodosa. It is not a xerophytic plant as is B. nodosa. Otherwise my seedlng seems not hard to grow.

I was hoping for D. infundibulum because I already have the current front-runners and I wanted an excuse to do another order.

What media are you growing yours in/on?
How much light?

It's a small seedling that came mounted on a big wad of sphagnum on cork from Olympic Orchids. It gets very bright shade. I water it by dunking, soaking or the spray bottle. I try not to let it get bone-dry.

I just bought a Leptotes bicolor this spring (a second one) and have another. They are pretty easy to grow...in just about anything, it seems. One is in large perlite/bark and the other is in LECA. I have seen them happily mounted, too, and some in full NZ moss.
