Default Angraecum eburneum

Six spikes and close to 100 blooms and buds this year. This colony consists of two adults growths, four sub-adult growths and nine "babies." At its widest point the planting is close to four feet wide. The fragrance at night is almost overpowering, and my entire house (which isn't small) smells strongly of honey between sunset and sunrise.

Yes, it's like moving a piano. It goes outdoors in late spring and comes back inside in early fall, spending the winter in a large sun room.

Yes, it's probably a couple of decades old. Bright indirect light in the summer (although it can handle direct early morning sun), lots of water and fertilizer during the growing season. Summer heat and humidity don't bother it. In the winter it sits in a south-facing window, dries out somewhat between waterings and takes intermediate night temps (anywhere between 55 and 62 F).

Very well grown and really, really beautiful! I like your choice of words when you described the growths as adults, sub-adults and babies. It gives a better visual of what's going on with your plant.

How long do the blooms last?

Very well-grown plant, Steve. It's a real treat to see one of these plants living to its full potential. I'm probably never going to touch an Angraecum again, though (I don't want to kill another one).

How long have you had this plant? Have you gotten any awards for it?
