    Today is a good angraecum day for me. This is a first bloom as well. This plant came from Botanica as a seedling in 2009 --actually Botanica, not Malala via Botanica.

    Mine sat there "thinking" for a long time. Just before it started spiking, I moved it to sit a bit behind a medium sized sequipedale. (Plant is about 18 inches tall, single fan with just small basal keikis.) So, it still got pretty bright light, but was consistently shaded. I had read somewhere that they liked a bit more shade to bloom--seemed odd but worth a try. I don't know if that is what did the trick or not--could have just decided to bloom. Maybe worth a shot with yours.

    Congratulations, how lovely! Do they have fragrance? I wonder if I am not giving mine sufficient light (300fc).

    Gilles -- the plant is 18 inches tall -- so 45 cm.
