    Default Mr. Darwin - Angraecum sesquipedale in full bloom

    All three buds have opened and the following two are closeups. I will follow this as soon as I can with a full view shot and the measurements.

    Actually, here's the full plant view. Too tired to measure, but the spurs/nectaries are well over 12" long.

    How is the fragrance? It can be bit overwhelming. It is one of my favorite Angraecums

    Actually, the fragrance isn't that strong and it seems to come out only at night. I've had a didieri bloom once, but the leonis hasn't yet, and the magdalenae is still too young, I think - so, I'd say this is my favorite angraecum, too. I just wish it wasn't so disorganized looking!
