    This is a very sweet miniature from Madagascar. The flower is about 3/4" tall and has no fragrance that I have noticed. I would like to have a name, but even more I would like pollen from another clone. I am growing it intermediate with year round water.

    Ooooh, i dearly love that with all my heart!
    Vegetatively it looks a helluva lot like my linearipetala, at least that's what my tag says. But mine hasn't bloomed so that would be pretty unreliable. Stewarts description of linearipetala really didn't seem to match your flower from what I can tell but it might be worth a look.

    I also add my sincere adoration and voice to the chorus of like-minded folk that takes such hope and happiness upon seeing special angraecoid species being cared for with such love and skill.

    Yes, I agree with mrbreeze, it appears to be J. linearipetala...assuming ours is labeled correctly. We've bloomed ours a couple of times and both the plant habit and flower "match" what you show.

    Thanks for the name. It is an attractive plant even when not in bloom.

    I have the same one, from Madagascar too. I bought it as J.linearipetala, but Isobyl LaCroix told me that it was not the good name...so I have no name for it!!

    Unfortunately I don't have pollen yet because it refuses to bloom since 2008 and I don't know why...
    If you don't find pollen, please collect yours and freeze them so maybe if mine bloom in some months...
    You can try to contact Bernd Junginger in Deutschland (his web site is on Google), some months ago he asked me about pollen because his was blooming...

    For the name, you can contact Isobyl LaCroix!!

    Thanks for the leads, gg. I tried a selfing, but it didn't take.
