    Kelly, I don't know if you grow Lpts bicolor but I grow this slightly drier than it. Other than that, Leptotes can tolerate lower levels of light so its probably not a light issue. If there is anything I could suggest it might be the water thought. It grows on a small bit of tree fern in a hot house (100 in the summer 55 low in winter).

    I agree on the watering. I have this in bloom now and it is hanging on a cattleya basket that hangs over my potted plants and is watered on a much less frequent schedule than most of my mounted plants.
