    I grow this species in somewhat lower light than most of my other angraecoids with high humidity & a warm temp regime. Very different growth habit when compared with Eur rothschildianus - much smaller plant, different leaf shape, etc. You'd never know they were related by comparing foilage. The spike hangs straight downward making photos a challenge. Very hard to find.

    Basically impossible to find these days...even though if I remember they were available just a mere 4 years ago. Great looking blooms

    Very special plant you have there. Both Eurychone species are somewhat hard to come by but that one's next to impossible to find.

    Superb! Quite hard to find and even harder to grow! Well done, T.

    In my vivarium I have found that they really don't like being moved. I found a sweet spot they like and I will never move them again.
