    Default Angraecum eburneum

    I have been thinking about trying to grow this orchid, the info I find for it is quite generic, and these plants can be pricey, so before I dive in I would appreciate any advice. I have 2 Angraecum sesquipedale that I've been growing since last march. I bought 2 because I read they hate being transplanted or having the roots disturbed. I have left 1 in the original pot and medium, large bark, the other I lifted out of the pot and squeezed it into the crux of a cypress knee, figuring as it took I could work the bark out between the roots. The one in the original pot is doing fine and the mounted one sulked a bit but is growing roots on the cypress and is putting out new top leaves. I also have a Oeoniella polystachys, which bloomed for me last winter, I've read that even though the name for this is different it is related to the angraecum. My motivation for growing these is the fragrance. I would appreciate any comments or advice on angraecum, I live in southeast Florida so I don't know if my location is appropriate, the info I found says cool to warm growing (that doesn't tell me much). I don't see these listed many places and wonder if it is because it can be a difficult plant to grow. Thank you, any comments, experiences or advice welcome.

    I have little experience of these but I think that the A. eburneum like the same conditions as A. sesquipedale. If you can handle one you should be fine with the other.
    I have though seen that there are alot of variation in the A. eburneum, and there could be large difference in demands between different plants. If you can find an larger plant grown under your condition or in your area it should be fine. I myself usually buy small young plants that usually have it easier to adopt to new conditions, even though I have to wait longer before the plants flowers.
