Default Angraecum eburneum

One of my favorite species--although something of a pain in the posterior to move around and photograph--is Angraecum eburneum. This one actually produced seven spikes this year, but the first one went out of bloom last week and another one got snapped off when the careless photograph (that would be me) whacked it against the side of the garage as the plant was being moved out to the driveway to photograph. Blooms are long lasting and incredibly fragrant after sunset.

That's like the biggest Angraecum I've ever seen! Nice job and nice plant.

The pot is about twenty-two inches (approximately 56 cm) in diameter. I got the plant when it was already an adult (although not as large as it has since become), so I'm not sure how old it is. It consists of three full-grown growths (I'm assuming they're full grown) that range in leafspan from two feet for the smallest adult growth (61 cm) to forty inches (102 cm) for the largest growth. There are also several "juveniles" and babies. The whole colony consists of around 8 or 9 growths in various stages of development.

Very good growing, Steve. That's one monster of a plant.

I'm thinking about getting one of these sometime in the future.

Goodness, that's beautiful! I love those huge plants with loads of spikes! Nice growing. How long have you had the plant?

I've had this one since 2004. I got another "smaller" one early last year, but for some reason it hasn't bloomed yet this year (it did bloom last year, however). Although the size of both plants (especially the one posted here) makes them rather cumbersome, they're relatively carefree and easy to maintain.
