    Default The little Areng that was stolen!

    I bought this at the last Sacramento show in April and had been going through some rough times with its name and where to put it. I was labeled Areng modesta, which it is obviously not due to the size. Its smaller than luteo alba and modesta is the size of spiculata. He finally found a home wired to the arbor inside the greenhouse at work so as to attract customers with something different. It was Saturday afternoon, or Sunday, that someone stole my dear little friend. Besides spending a large bit for him, its insulting.

    So if anyone lives in Sacramento, and you happen to know this orchid specifically, please notify me.

    Nice plant! Does it have any fragrance?
    Sorry that your little friend was taken from you. You ought to label these things - off-the-limits, you nasty little hands...!
    I am starting to collect these guys. It appears that most of these species have a diverse array of different fragrances and they are fragrant mostly at night! Just think about it, a collection of night fragrant orchids, hmm, a great prop for dinner party's entertainment program!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    I have other ideas for night fragrant orchids, including the after dinner party. My Angraecum specimen was amazing last summer for a nocturnal scent!

    It smelled spicy, like a vanilla-cinnamon-nutmeg-esque

    The things I keep on display at work have documentation all over them. I use 8 gauge wire to secure them too, so its not exactly convient to get them loose...
