    Smile Angraecum Veitchii

    Angraecum Veitchii is in bloom for us now. I didn't get any good shots of it, but these two show off the orchid blooms the best. It has been blooming for a couple weeks now.

    Haha... no, the plant is huge and has grown roots down through the wire of the bench into the gravel of the greenhouse floor. It isn't going anywhere unless I move. lol

    This one is lovely: I had one (it died last year unfortunately and I decided not to replace it as it gets too big) which had flowers that were quite green in colour. I prefer the white colour of yours

    Thanks Ted. I just went out and snapped the photos below to show the size of this monster. He looks in pretty bad shape, but that was do to him almost dieing during the summer when the fan went out in the greenhouse. Many of the older leaves are still messed up. The leaves are also covered in minerals from the water. I haven't cleaned the leaves off in months. The newest leaves look pretty good though.

    Anyway, this first shot shows the size of the plant. It takes up all four bench levels. The roots from above are from some hanging cattleyas.

    And this shot shows how the roots just got out of control and have grown through the bench. A shot from under the bench. A real mess that I will one day have to find time to clean up.
