    Default Bigfoot's new Ang. sesquipedale ('Phantom Flourish x Flambouyant')

    I scarcely dare even to look at this thing - it has TWO buds. I'm so afraid they'll blast before they open, any advice on its transition from greenhouse to southern exposure window would be greatly appreciated!

    Don't know it, Maura, but LOVE the look of it. Pretty cool pot too! I would say just keep the light and humidity up and not move it around too much, ast least until the flowers are fully opened.
    I hope Bigfoot is home to enjoy the blooms with you.
    Cheers,
    Tony

    It's one of my mom's antique orchid pots - it's just sitting in there - if I ever get the nerve to repot it, that's where
    it will go, though.

    Can't help here. Don't grow any Angraecoids but friends who do, say that they grow under the same conditions as vandas. That is a really wonderful gift for Phillip when he comes home.
