Angraecum didieri

tucker_sp(Z4 MN)September 16, 2011

Want big flowers in a small package? You might try this one. The flower is 2.75" (70 mm) across, and the plant is just the same height. Strong-smelling (I wouldn't call it fragrant) at night.

Hope you enjoy it!

I did, though I do find Angraecums a bit "samey". That plus they won't grow for me. Harumph!

Thanks for posting! Is the scent comparable to anything else?

I am tempted to try one.
How would they do outside in Miami?

I love the pristine white of the angs. I finally have a leonis that is starting to spike, yippee!
