Just saw that LOC has Dendrobium farmerii available for $35 and the canes grow 20-40cm (~8 to 15 inches).

I would love to try the leptotes bicolor as well. Is it hard to source in non-US areas? Wonder if we could ask Andy’s or somewhere similar if he could source it here…

If it isn't on Andy's website, ask... What is on the website is a very small fraction of what he has, I'd be really surprised if he didn't have that one. Another note... Leptotes bicolor and Leptotes pohlitinocoi have the same culture (and bloom at about the same time) so the project could be expanded to include related species. That would expand the options.

Maybe someone non-US could look and see if available elsewhere.

I'm the only non US participant, and already have 2 of the 3 main Leptotes species (missing unicolor). They are easy to find in Europe at least.
Andy must have a few, there was a post a week or so ago from someone asking for advice about a mounted L.bicolor just purchased from Andy's.

Also in the US, it's on the Diamond Orchids list (A 4N in a 2 inch pot). In the past, Gold Country Orchids and Santa Barbara Orchid Estate have had either Lpt bicolor or politinocoi or both, don't know if that's still the case.

I'm new to the Orchid Board, and fairly new to growing orchids in general, but you can count me in too!

Thanks for taking the time to look it up.
J&L doesn't have any stock though, it's listed as unavailable. For the others, someone posted early on in the thread that the Hausermann plant is 2 years from blooming, and the Ecuagenera plant didn't have good reviews.

I can add the pohlitinicoi from Cal Orchids to the list!

---------- Post added at 08:41 AM ---------- Previous post was at 08:10 AM ----------

I updated the candidate list in the first post and separated them into different categories.

If we open up Leptotes bicolor to related species which are all very similar in appearance and culture (Letotes pohlitinicoi, unicolor and bohnkiana) there should be enough to go around, especially as the group of participants is quite small this year.

If we want to check availability of Leptotes bicolor (and other species) at Andy's, is he likely to respond to an email or is it better to call? If calling is better would someone in the US might giving him a call? I can take care of emailing if that's fine too.
