    This is the only Angraecum that I’ve had for a long time. I grew it from a flask.

    Very nice "color" for an Angraecoid. Nice everything else too.

    Very beautiful species. How long did it take from seed to flower?

    Thank you both. I would say it took 6-7 years from flask and has bloomed the last 3 years now. It seemed to sit still for several years before it really started to grow, so maybe a little slow for the species?

    Nice! I keep mine pretty warm, and it does grow OK, but it hasn't flowered yet. How long is each leaf?

    That's gorgeous! I love the pink blush, and I love angs! I see that you're growing it in a basket - is it bare root, or chunky media?

    EDIT: BTW, I must find one of these!

    Thanks...and a bit of a dilemma. It is actually in a net pot which I planted it in after taking out of compot 5+/- years ago. I don’t think there is much of NZ Sphagnum left and the net pot was getting brittle so I placed the net pot in a basket just recently. I will need to do something after blooming is over and hope to avoid damaging the roots...I may go with something chunky as I am a frequent waterer
