    It would be interesting to watch how the moth uncoil its "tongue".

    Lovely flower.

    That's awesome, Gilda! I wish ours here would bloom already so we could join the Angraecum parade!

    I am a little disappointed in mine this year...so far only one spike..last year it had 3 ! It probaly needs a repotting..other than that ,it had the same care. I got it 2 years ago as a 'baggie' plant from Lowes' in FLA.

    Good growing Gilda!
    Don't be depressed about just getting 1 spike this year, maybe it's just saving up it strenght to give you 5 spikes next year?

    What is a "baggie" plant?

    I've an angracm. Sesquipedale, it's only a seedling and it's about 1 inch tall.
    It will take AGES before it will be able to bloom for me.
    I really need to buy a blooming size one.

    Dana,
    In Fla. all the Lowes, boxstores and even boxstores sell orchids in plastic bags(bare root). Most are large seedling size, different genera, and very reasonably priced !!!!!!!!!!!!! They are usually hanging somewhere in the garden depts.

    That's stunning, Gilda! Hard to believe Lowe's had it! Sort of like finding paphs in Trader Joe's. I saw an interesting article on the orchid business: http://www.floracultureintl.com/arch...icles/1186.asp

    Gilda, what media are you using for this pretty boy? (There can't be any question that it's male...) Is the culture generally the same as for vandas?
