Default Angraecum diderii

I received this plant from Hausermann Wednesday. I am considering mounting this one, but before I do I have questions. Upon close inspection I noticed two nubs growing from a lower portion of the stem. First, could they be spikes? I have never owned this species before. Second, would changing the culture now have negative consequences on these blooms, if that is indeed what they are? If so, I will leave it like it is, in its original pot and sitting on a bed of moss inside another pot.

I'm growing my first African orchid, Cyrtorchis chailluana, and see something that resembles your pix. It threw out new roots and leaves so I'm pretty sure it's a spike. Growing on cork mount, a bit of s/m and under lights. Fun!

I'd leave it "as is" until they nubs grow enough that you can tell whether spike or roots. Yes, then mount it! I wanna see that smaller tent become an automister tent!

I only got mine a couple months ago, but I chose to mount it and it seems happy with that. I do grow it in a tent with a mister! Those could be buds, I think mine looked like that but now it is looking more clearly like a bud. Could be a basal growths though.

Here's a little update. While the nubs haven't done anything, I got it mounted awhile back and while spraying it today found new root growth beginning from an existing root. I'm happy.

Nice! Those nubs could also eventually become new growths - the species does make basal growths quite readily.

Thanks Roberta. It's all a learning experience for me. I hope jumping into species will aid me in a better understanding of hybrids. I realize they can be a bit more fussy than hybrids, so I'm being more watchful for possible issues.

You might just fall in love with species... I find in most cases they're actually easier than hybrids, because their origins (and therefore needs) are known. They may or may not be forgiving, but I know my "target".
