What is your favorite Angraecoid? Tell us about the care and other things you particularly like about it. If it's as impossible for you to choose as me, pick several Mine changes often but right now it is Aeranthes hysing ramosa. The bud is just about to open and I'm so excited!

Aeranthes Hsinying Ramosa is a pretty cool hybrid. Only thing that I was disappointed about with mine is that it wasn't fragrant. That's a big draw for me to the Angraecoids. But it produces a lot of flowers on each spike due to the successive blooming nature and the branching spikes.

Currently I'm very happy with Angraecum didieri. It's small so it fits under lights, the flowers are proportionally large, and they're nice and fragrant in the evening.

I really like my Angraecum sesquipedale seedling. I've had it a year and it's growing well. Each leaf is bigger than the last. It was a little too small to bloom last winter, but I think this winter it will happen.

Angraecum didieri. I bought it bs less than a year ago and it has bloomed twice since then. Also it is fragrant at night.

I think my favorite Angraecoid ever was the magdalenae that I lost to some sort of infection (Angraecums can go very fast once something hits them). I raised it from a tiny seedling for about six years and finally had blooms! They were fragrant during the day, perfuming the room with an enchanting scent and even more so at night, perfuming the home. This lasted a little over two months. Six months later, more blooms. The second time it bloomed, though, infection set in after the blooms fell off. I now am starting over with another tiny seedling....

I do have high hopes for my Aeranthes grandiflora. It is quite pretty out of bloom, in my opinion.
I also really like distichum (mine seems to be fragrant during the day????), leonis, didieri and the sesquipedale. I have not tried any of the hybrids, yet. Maybe someday....

I'm so sorry about your magdalenae! Atleast you have another seedling. That one is next on my "must have" list. I just got a seedling Angraecum viguieri and wow is it tiny. I'm worried about it because it is actually my first angraecum.

Angraecum stella-africae. Purely because of its rarity and has a nice bloom. Our societies emblem
