Default Angraecum cf. breve

When I posted this before, I posted it as Angraecum breve, but have since been informed that it is not that species, but something that is probably new. It apparently keys out as Angraecum urschianum, but the plant is very different from that species and the flowers bloom at a different time. It was suggested that I label the plant "cf. breve" (cf. = confer) until such a time as it could be more certainly identified, which I've done. There are pictures of the unopened buds with their charmingly curled spurs of the newly opened flowers, of the whole plant and flowers at the blog post below.

Thanks, Hannah. I should post a picture that shows how tiny this thing is.

I tell myself that there are only a few variations in angraecums and I don't need more but if I see any I don't have at the shows, I am buying. I really like your urshianum. This is just as nice, no matter what lable is given. Thanks for sharing it once again.

It would be really hard to resist this one. Thanks for taking a look.

Thanks! That's very kind. I've been growing them for more than 35 years, so I guess I've learned one or two things.

Thanks for looking and for the humor, Jim. By any name it's a sweet little plant.
