Default Angraecum distichum

My Angraecum distichum is blooming very early this year. It usually blooms around Christmas time for me giving a nice display for the holiday season. The plant is 11 inches tall (measured from top of the wooden basket) and 11 inches wide. It is attached to a large cork bark standing upright inside the wooden basket. The plant is grown in a shady area and watered daily.

Thta's gorgeous, and enormous!! And a beautiful photo to show it off.

If I were to see that in a garden center I would hardly be able to guess it was an orchid, the growth habit is very unusual looking.

Have you has it a long time for it to be such a large plant, or is it just a fast grower?

Thank you Camille for your kind comments. The plant is at least 15 years old. I consider it a slow grower.
