    Default Angraecum calceolus

    This is one of those orchids that I don't know why I bought it in the first place ! Probably I was fooled by the name Angraecum which has some nice showy species. I am not a big fan of small flowers which are whitish green, have no scent and which can't hold themselves. These flowers fit each and every of these criteria, anyways the plant is small and doesn't take much place so no worries, this is the first blooming for me.
    The first flower is a newly open green flower and the following ones have become white after 2-3 days.

    Seems to have lots of blooms though. I like the shape of the flower.

    Cheers,

    Not as showy as some of its relatives but interesting.
