Got this from a Marni flask in Dec 2017, and first bloom. I'm enchanted with this species.
Wow, only 1+ years out of flask! Nice growing!
Very nice growing!
And what a long spur it has! It is huge compared with the plant!
May I ask you what is that "brown something" that you used to mount your plant?
It's just a plank of cedar wood, and then some hygrolon to hold the plant in place!
Hygrolon? Aha! Never used it. Thank you for teaching me about it!
Very nice to see this. Good growing!
Well done, Calvin!
Some clones from this batch of seedlings have turned out quite floriferous, and this one decided to produce 5 flowers closely spaced together at the apex of the growth.
Unfortunately, closely spaced flowers doesn't seem to suit the long petals/spurs of this species well, and the flowers end up tangled in a bit of a mess. Very unfitting for the typical elegance afforded to angraecoids.
Sorry I didn't reply to this last year. I've decided I don't like hygrolon at all, and have stopped using it. It seems to get stiff and crusty with time, and I'm not sure what benefit it adds
These are really interesting. The flowers are like little ghost floating around the plant.
Very nicely grown!
Thank you very much for sharing this info. There are so many materials available these days. It is very interesting for me to learn about people's experience with them.
