Hi Tina,
Glad you like the Leptotes. I bought it about ten years ago from L&R
Orchids of New Zealand.
It hangs on its cork plaque facing West in my Intermediate section, Min.
15C, where it gets good light much of the day (see the leaf type). This
time of year it is watered weekly and this goes up to twice weekly in
Summer, but it does drain almost immediately.
Hope this is helpful.
Regards Bill

I grow mine warm it is covered with flower buds at the moment. The plant has been resting over winter the only moisture has been from the hydrofogger. I am hoping it will not be over for the Harrogate Orchid Society show later this month. Two years ago this plant received an award of merit card at the Harrogate show.

Cheers Malcolm
