    Nice! You guys have many cool things going on in your greenhouse right now. What's the difference between this and bicolor? Looks identical to my bicolor...

    Thanks Nat! They look very similar until you see them side by side. Bicolor is about 3x the size of this species. Also bicolor has a distinct blooming season while this one in bloom more often than not throughout the year

    Thanks for the info, Zack! I guess in a way all Leptotes look to me like bicolor since that's all I grow in the genus...;)

    Here's another I must have missed (Thanks Brent for that random photo feature)! I need to find a few Leptotes. It's a genus that should do well in my conditions, but I just haven't really sought them out.
