    Older, mature plant. I grow it potted in very high light, quite warm, humid, etc.

    Wow! Spectacular. Is the plant massive? I love how the nectaries are so long they don't even fit in the picture.

    How nice to see it situated among other angraecoids in your collection. I am curious about the names of two other plants in the photo: the really tall narrow plant with prodigious leaves all neatly arranged and the beautiful white flower at the bottom of the photo?

    That is a beauty! Would you mind taking a photo of the whole plant? I'd love to see it even if that means less detail on the flowers. That way I can "stand back" and admire from afar. :)

    And Jacob, if I had to guess -- I'd say the tall, narrow plant is the primary hybrid of Angcm florulentum and eburnum called Shooting Stars. :)

    Sarah's right about the taller plant - florulentum x eburnum. It produces the most gorgeous flush of flowers imaginable. The lower flowers are Ang. leonis.
