    Default Angraecum leonis

    Here are some pictures of my Angraecum leonis from the first bud til flowering. The scent is wonderful during the evening and the flowers last long.

    Very pretty, your plant relatively dehydrated may need more water.

    @BD They flower for two to three weeks, they start of greenish and turn white in a few weeks.

    @zainal abidin It was indeed very dehydrated. But I also think it needs this for good flowering. Now that groth started again the succulent leaves are swolen again. Also enough light is very importent.

    Lovely flowers. I tried one of these a few years back but killed it. May have been just as well as I bought the plant thinking it was a mini but later read that it was a small to mid-size plant.
