    A nice plant from H&R grown intermediate-warm with 2nd year rewards.

    This plant is in bloom again, but what's exciting is I have another clone that I bought about 7 years ago that is now blooming for the first time. I'm quite convinced both are equitans, based upon Jacob's key found here. I was hoping this one might end up being compactum, but alas, two equitans.

    What's somewhat interesting is that this species supposedly comes from 2000m, and yet I've never grown it colder than 17C...maybe it would be happier and give more than 2 blooms a year if I grew it colder, but can't achieve that right now. Also, the potted one definitely avoids the leaf wrinkling so typical of this species, but unfortunately, it really cramps the presentation of the flowers.

    Very beautiful.
    :) I don't know about others, but I just love angraecums. And these look amazing!
