    I love this one - lots of spikes that started over the winter and lengthened over the months. I didn't think they would bloom, given that I was growing this on a window sill, with ambient Canadian winter humidity (aka 0% humidity). I guess the recent warm temperatures and increase in light have activated all those little spikes!

    Also, ang didieri (left) and rutenbergianum (right) are blooming together. I don't really see much difference though...

    Calvin, do you want to have the Angraecums in a separate thread? I think the only difference in these (not necessarily yours, but mine as well) is the label.

    Now that I've suggested it, I may have to get help on this. I wasn't paying attention and am not sure how to move part of a post. It makes searches more valuable to have separate posts.
