Wonderful plant and blooming! How cool do you keep this one in the winter? Any change in watering?

It's not uncommon for some root death as a plant acclimatizes to new conditions. It was probably grown in a humid warm greenhouse, so the transition to your apartment (despite your efforts) is the...

A most excellent plant, and likely not Angraecum germinyanum, but the much much rarer Angraecum conchoglossum from Madagascar!! There are a few plants floating around sold under germinyanum that...

Angraecoid growers in Canada?

Hi all,

Just wanted to take an informal poll to gauge any angraecoid growers in Canada. The reason is that I have a few batches of seedlings of angraecoids acclimatizing that will likely need...

I actually haven't sniffed this one too closely! Definitely not as strong as some others. I'll check back next year once they bloom again

Angraecum germinyanum

A commonly seen species. I have several clones that all essentially look the same - this one is from Taiwan.

Beth - I got this one as a trade from someone who got a flask of them. Hopefully they will become more readily available - they seem robust.

Thanks all - I'll try and take a full plant photo sometime this week.

Angraecum litorale

A lovely angraecum that looks like a more delicate version of didierii. Becoming one of my favourites

Jumellea densefoliata

A reliable grower, sometimes with a few and sometimes with more flowers.

Dendrobium cariniferum

Smells like oranges and plastic. One of the nigrohirsute dendrobiums. I enjoy the textured lip immensely.
