Native to the
amazing island of Madagascar. This plant has a beautiful and unusual looking
flower; and the most colorful of the Angraecums. These can bloom at a
rather small size (just a few inches tall) and eventually grow to be quite
tall. The flowers are large for the plant size and like the typical
Angraecum, are fragrant at night. This might be one of the trickiest seedlings
we have had personal experience with as it needs the right combination
of conditions on day one; not much room for forgiveness here. Once we
disregarded what wed read about culture for these, and tried our
own thing the plants stopped dying! Soon they were observed to be
producing copious numbers of fine wiry roots. Low light, regular water
and modest fertilizer has yielded good results for us. They DO NOT
like to have their roots disturbed, so try your best to leave them alone!
Weve tried them plaqued and potted, and honestly, as well as we
do with plaqued plants, the ones in pots have grown (and bloomed) better!
