    That guy is new! Cute. How long before it is mature enough to bloom?

    Cheers,

    soooo...ive been researching online about Angraecum distichum a lot lately.. Now im not to sure if i actually have that. Maybe its a different variety or something. I know many people dont know much about this species,But. Is there anyway that someone can tell me im not seeing things and look up pictures of Ang. distichum to compare to my picture?

    Andrew, I have an ang. distichum. I will post a picture this evening when I get home. I think, from only a quick peek at yours, that it looks like my distichum.

    Ok, here are pix of my ang. distichum. I think it looks v much like your plant, Andrew.

    Hmmm, these pictures are letting me see that my plant is looking a wee bit stressed. The newer growth looks nice and plump though.

    Thank you very much for posting these pictures. Your plant does look very much like mine. How long have you had it for? Mine was mounted with some sphag that seemed so tight. So i potted it with some small grade bark mix and a little sphag. I've been trying to fine tune my culture. It seems to like drying off fast to prevent rot but also a decent amount of water. What kinda environment/ culture do you practice with this little guy?
