    I am not sure after your question Roy. I was sold by that name and I looked for the long spur. is it a hybrid?

    Congrats very nice Angrecum indeed but I dont think this is sesquipedale most probably is hybrid Sriram just compare the lip with the species you can see a lot of different.

    Congrats Sriram. Mine doesn't seem to want to bloom. Yours could be Angraecum Veitchii .

    I believe it could be a hybrid. The plant for a start isn't correct & the flower has oddities also. I don't think its Veitchii, flower isn't right. Could be a Lemforde White Beauty. There are other similar hybrids but after researching its the closest I could come up with.

    Thank you Roy. This is a new genera to me and would have struggled to find the name and more so with a hybrid.

    Lovely bloom but I, like everyone else, suspect it is Angraecum Veitchii or another hybrid.

    cheers,

    Beautiful. I'd say Veitchii as well as sesquipedale has a VERY LONG nectar spur.
