Angreceum magdalena,

This is a lithophytic, monopodial species found in Central Madagascar in areas with a distinct cool, dry season through the winter. It's in the warm GH right now but will spend the winter in the cool GH. Has about 5 groups of flowers but hard to capture more than one set. Nice pristine white.

Lovely, but as always, I have to ask: is there any fragrance?

Not during the day time but apparently kicks in late to attract the night flying moths with long tongues. I have never gone out there late at night to confirm this.

Beautiful! If it likes cooler and drier through the winter, I might try it. My conditions don't seem to be much good for most angraecoids, with the exception of my old Aeranthes grandiflora, which is blooming now - I'll post a pic.

Beautiful, I love these plants.

Nick, check it at about 9PM (you must still be up) and you should smell the fragrance. They start smelling shortly after dark.

Even though by 9PM some of my organ systems are nearing shut-down, I'll go out there tonight and let you know tomorrow

At 10PM, with a few neural synapses still firing, I went out there and was greeted with a nice aroma at the door. Wonderful sweet fragrance.

Thank you Nick, for your dedication, to go out so late.

I hope the fragrance was worth it.

It's been blooming off and on. These 2 lined up nicely so I took a picture.

So pretty, Nick. I love these orchids. I just got another and it has one bloom ready to open. They are so easy to grow and are reliable bloomers. Everyone should have a few.

The smell is lovely...outdoors

Can yours tell my angraecums to get to work. That is fantastic. Do you know if it is typical to bloom that frequently?

I have had it for years and this is the first time it has ever done this.

Love these orchids, just got my third one last night from Gold Orchids. He was the speaker at our society meeting. What kind of light do you give yours?

Yours is just beautiful.
