Angraecum florulentum

Angraecum florulentum

Angraecum florulentumSo the fragrant saga continues… This is a lovely medium sized monopodial epiphyte from the Comoros where it grows on altitudes from 600 to 1000 meters. It smells kind of like Lilly of the Valley with a hint of jasmine in the mix too perhaps. The scent is quite strong in the evening.

Not even when scrutinized under a magnifying glass. No, my dear Watson, the working theory is that the spur might have gotten damaged somehow […]

Mysterious Angraecum florulentum bud blast

Angraecum florulentumNow I am a bit confused … one of the buds on my Angraecum florulentum has begun to fade. The other 4 buds are thankfully developing nicely and are looking fine – so far. I really have no idea why this one bud (top left) has decided to blast on me. 😐

I have never had this happen on buds I have cultivated myself – just in new […]
