Default Leptotes bicolor bud watch





33 new growths this year, and 32 of them is now beginning to develop flower buds...it will grow very slowly, taking nearly two months to fully develop its inflorescences. I am expecting about 60 to 90 flowers for around late February 2021.

Btw, this is the oldest orchid I am having right now. I've been growing this one for about six years and now it is growing into a nice specimen.

That is going to be spectacular! A wonderful little species, and your plant is superbly grown.

Beautiful!

My teenager plant will need many, many winters and summers to get that big.

Waiting for your new photos in 2 months ;-)

It is doing fine; just couple of millimeters, but definitely growing. It will ramp up around mid-February when the temperature warms up a bit.

Exciting!!! Thanks for the update. I went to have a peek at mine, and I see little tiny spike nubbins starting to form as well!
