    This lovely little plant was labelled angraecum sp... Now that is has opened its flowers for me, I think it is Angraecum calceolus, but the whole plant is rather small compared to what is written (e.g. in "Angraecoid orchids"). The leaves are less than 10cm long and the plant seems to be mature. Any ideas?

    Your id is good, but this species is able to bloom even if the plant is still Young, so with still little leaves!!;)

    I don't think that it is still young. It has a quite big root system an many very short stems.
