Default Angcm. eburneum

Lots of photos of eburneum around online. Some flowers recently opened for the latest round of flowering.

Angcm. eburneum appear to be very hardy here in tropical conditions. I have found that they can handle quite intense sun conditions. Full sun. The occasional 1 or 2 leaf scorch during the most intense summer scorching days - but no problem at all. Watering of these ones here are via automatic pop-up rotating lawn sprinklers (nightly).

These have never been manually fertilised - but I know that insects live inside the scoria pots, and their roots touch the soil and rocks outside the pot. These orchids haven't been touched or moved since the first day they've been placed there --- quite a long time ago. They haven't needed any looking after at all. Just water from the pop-up sprinklers is all they need.

Delighted to share these photos taken today with everyone on OrchidBoard.

Would just like to add that - most of the photos are approximately 1024 x 768 pixels, or 768 x 1024. But OrchidBoard automatic processing has actually reduced the size of certain photos. Some are supposed to be slightly larger in size than how they automatically ended up.

D.C. hahahaha! Good eye D.C. Good eye.

I have to go in to check them out later today - once the sun comes. I think the outer plant, or outer plants are just growing off the original(s), with their own roots. I'll see if I can get in there to take a pic of the old pots - in there among the plants.

Update: Just including one photo here ------ with a little black-colour poking though - part of the rim of a plastic pot. A bit of a jungle around here!

I figure when an orchid outgrows the pot and keeps growing, it didn't want to be in a pot in the first place. These are quite happy in their "escaped" status.

hahaha!!! That's a pretty good humanised orchid view Roberta!

I had always been thinking along the lines of ----- the orchid's new growths won't fit in that pot due to expansion and limited real-estate, so some end up outside the pot. The plants can't think as such - but if they naturally have the capability to propagate sideways - and if the growing conditions/environment allow it, then that will/can occur.

We put epiphytes in pots and other contained spaces in an attempt to give them enough of what they get in habitat to grow for us - moisture and air around roots, and stable support, which are not so simple in captivity. But if they get their needs met outside the pot, and continue to thrive, I think that's a "not broken don't try to fix it" situation - let them be natural.

Wow, that is a large one! I think I will stick to my smaller Angraecums. It is rather splendid, though, I must say, and I wish I could see it in person as orchids are always more spectacular than the photos could possibly ever show.
