Just a note...we have a tie between Leptotes bicolor and Cattleya walkeriana (Jazz's vote was moved to the Cattleya).
Perhaps we need to find a hybrid of the two...lol

If it matters, if the dendrobium is out of the running, I'm up for the Cattleya since I already have a leptotes!

Ok so I don't know what to do. Is there going to be a second vote or not? There is so many people that have both of these. I don't have the Leptotes but can get it together with the walkeriana. Or I can just break the tie. I kind of wanted the Laelia.

My take on it is this. The orchid projects have become an excellent source of information, especially for plants that are less commonly grown such as Amesiella. If it weren't for the last project, out would have taken me much longer to figure out how to care for my Amesiella. Cattleya are well known and well documented. I'm not sure how well documented Leptotes are.

If there is a tie, we will have a second vote for the two that are tied, a poll that is open for twenty-four hours.

From what I read, C. walkeriana is not the easiest to grow for some people. So if it wins, I think it will be beneficial to many.

I think it's confusion between when rain falls vs when water is available in habitat.
