    Flowers are smaller this year. Still a few spikes growing. African.

    That makes me want to hit Andy's and look for really obscure species. Great photos.

    That's one of the nicest Angs I've seen! They all tend to look alike to me (sorry MrB) but that fabulous lip makes this one really unique.

    It is not an Ang, though it is from Africa and surely lives amongst some Angs. I know it does at my house!
    thanks y'all.

    I have rothscildianum , I have already seen thomsonianus but never such a beautiful flower,
    unfortunately it is very difficult to find, a friend of mine spends his days looking through catalogs and e-bay fathom but still nothing ...
