Leptotes bohnkiana - An easy miniature. Acquired this as a very small/young plant (this is the first bloom). I've been growing it out for awhile indoors under bright artificial light, RH around 50% with fairly warm temperatures, watered about once a week, and allowed to dry out between watering. Small bark is used as a growing medium in a small hanging pot.

Looks nice wisdomseeker! Are you growing this in a terrarium?

A terrarium of sorts. I have four wooden growing enclosures (recently added sliding glass doors on two of these). The L. bohnkiana hangs in one of them. The other one houses assorted miniatures, and the two with open fronts house phals & phaps. Remainder of my terrariums are constructed out of glass or acrylic (growing mainly miniatures inside the glass & acrylic).

This is where it hangs
