    This plant was labeled Angraecum equitans, this is its first time blooming. It doesn't look like the photos of Ang. equitans that I have found so far. Any ideas as to what it might be? Thanks for any information!

    This may not be all that mysterious... I looked back at photos of a prior blooming, and those look normal. For whatever reason, this time, it looks like the pollen cap just didn't develop, for reasons unknown. (Both flowers look the same, so not like it got lost) and the lip is definitely narrower than it was last time. Hopefully, the next blooming will be normal.
