I LOVE this plant! It puts out new growth all the time and seems to bloom one after another.
That's hot. Any culture tips for this one?
What's your secret? I got one from Andy's at the Southland orchid show. I was told they like very high humidity so I had to improvise since I do not have a g/h. I put a plastic milk container over it (i removed the bottom part and poke some holes around) and mist the inside everyday. So far all it gave me is new root.
This is actually a 'pre-greenhouse' plant so to me it's survival is remarkable and the fact that it thrives is miraculous.
I mounted it on a tree fern pole right away after I got it.
When I grew it under lights I kept it on the bright side.
Now it grows between an Aer. citrata and a Masd. variabilis
"I was told they like very high humidity"
I don't think they need any more humidity than most orchids. But I think they do better when they dry between waterings.
A very nice Angraecum, Jon.
They don't need high humidity to live and grow, but they do need it to allow the spikes to develop. High light, high humidity, high drying between high waterings. Low watering when roots aren't growing. If one does well with didieri one should consider elephantinum, which is just as good if not better.
I actually have a smaller elephantinum for just that reason.
btw...be vewy vewy quiet...my sequipedale has a big ol' bud
Nice! Can you teach mine how to bloom please? Its been sitting there mocking me for 2 yrs.
Sweet! I think there is a spike on mine now just starting to pop out
