    This is an interesting hybrid from Hoosiers of Angraecum florulentum x cucullatum. I've read that cucullatum is a very small plant. I have florulentum and it grows up to 12" tall. this one is blooming in a 2" net pot and is about 3" tall! The spur is very long.

    Fangtastic!
    I have a few that aren't far behind that size so maybe i'll get lucky.
    By the way, you don't really have to include "really cool" when you're posting an Angraecoid. I'm sure everyone knows that all Angraecoids are really cool by default. :clap:
