Dehydrated Angraecum leonis in a vase
After almost 2 years, I am terminating my attempt to grow Angraecum leonis in a vase. The methods was not intrinsically flawed, so much as I have run out of time to water the orchid as much as it requires. Grown in a vase, my Angraecum needed daily watering during the cooler months, and would need twice daily watering during summer. Lately, I have been finding myself too busy to take care of my orchids on a daily basis (hence the recent decline in post frequency as well). I've been watering the orchids every 3-4 days, and the Angraecum has suffered as a result. The newest leaf is shriveled.
Newly repotted Angraecum leonis
I've repotted the orchid into a 5" clear plastic pot, with large bark pieces. Hopefully this setup will help it better tolerate my lackadaisical watering schedule.
