    Have been waiting for this one for a while. Began to spike last August. Angraecum sesquipidale 2.jpg
    Chris might remember this plant. I'll post another pic when it gets open a bit more.

    Kip - Looks like it was worth the wait.

    I've had a small one for about 4 months now. It's not a fast grower but any idea on how long they take to get to flowering size? The longest leaf is about 80mm long.

    Hi Tropicbreeze, Not sure how large they need to be before they first bloom but I do know they grow very slowly, at least for me. Got this one from a forum member almost two years ago and it has only grown three leaves in that time. Very worth it though. Flowers are truly amazing.

    Yes, I do fairly well with it, but had it in too much light last year and the buds were all tightly congested near the stem.

    Thanks Kipper. It's the wet season here now and I thought it might pick up the pace a little. I guess it's got its own mind when it comes to that.

    After a few days, still waiting for a little less yellow. I'm amazed at how dense (can't think of a better word) the blooms are. They seem to have more substance than the foliage. Sesqui.jpg
