First blooming, two spikes, six flowers. Soft, soapy fragrance at night. My room has been very dry and I've noticed some browning on the tips of the flowers. Poor photos as my flash quit.

Stunning! The multiple blobs of honeydew indicate a happy happy plant and the photos are not bad at all. What do you have this growing in, Jane?

RE: Angraecum Crestwood

Thanks.
Calvin, always a complement from the expert! I have it planted in large bark chunks. It will need repotting this Spring.

Beautiful plant/blooms! What are the parents in this cross? How large is your plant? My shopping list for an upcoming Spring show will be topped by angraecums & related genera. I love look of the waxy white/green blooms and fragrance is always a 'big' plus for me.

Surely you jest! I'm barely at half my weight in dead orchids...although I just managed to watch the last leaf drop off a poor aerangis I got a few months ago so I guess that brings me a little closer to 'expertise'

Large chunks makes total sense...duh...esp for those fat roots. That's a great looking plant and I wouldn't be surprised if it put on an even more magnificent show next year!

Sheila - this is a cross between sesquipidale and eburneum :) I hope you report back what you end up getting off your shopping list

Thanks, Sheila its quite a beauty. It is pretty big but a slow grower. I've only had it 2 1/2 years. It is about 2 ft tall. Very neat grower. Grew a basal keiki last year which is growing along nicely.

This is a first for me. Still learning my way around it. I left it out when the nights got cool in fall and it started spiking. Took about 4 months for those blooms. This plant seems to defy the culture info on it. Likes growing cool--low 50's all Winter.

Give it a try,
Jane
