infundibulare 'Big Sky Brobdingnagian'
Here’s a special
one. This is an interesting angraecum that grows vertically, sending roots
out along the stem as it grows in height. They can become quite tall and
eventually require staking or something to attach to. We’ve grown them
in pots with a stake and on cork plaques. Both work nicely though the
potted ones have been better bloomers for us. They have amazing flowers
that are the largest of any of the African Angraecums. The flowers can
be 3-1/2" wide and 8" tall, are WONDERFULLY fragrant, and quite long lasting.
The spur is funnel-shaped at the base and the pattern on it is a thing
of beauty. They endemic to forested areas of Nigeria, Cameroon, Principe,
Congo, Zaire, Ethiopia, Uganda and Kenya where it is hot and humid.
MANY plants sold as Angraecum infundibulare are actually Angraecum eichlerianum...a
nice plant but NOT as spectacular when it blooms.
We're selling divisions of the plant pictured, so this is what you can
expect. It's also important to note that this plant has been tested and
is free of virus.
