    Wonderful! I now have one and can't wait for a flower. How tall is the plant?

    The biggest leave is nearly 7cm long!!

    Sometimes when Malala sells this Angraecum, she "mix" two different species, Angraecum popowii and Angraecum teretifolium whose leaves are longer and thinner!!

    Thanks, Gilles. This is from LA Orchids and if I'm lucky enough to bloom it I'll find out then.

    Gilles - I just compared this with your photo from 2014 and it almost looks like it has exactly the same number of leaves! I'm guessing this is a glacial-speed grower

    I think that there is one new leave and the oldest has fallen since last year, but you are right, this Angraecum is not a fast grower!!!

    Gilles, I took a look at my plant today and compared it to yours. I'm pretty sure it is Ang teretifolium and not popowii. I don't have either so it will be new
    whatever it turns out to be.
