    Cool Angraecum didieri

    This arrived with a bud a couple weeks ago. I tried to straighten out the nectary, but quit messing with it out of fear I would end up with the flower broken off in my hand. lol I broke an oncidium spike yesterday and just did not want to do that again.

    No scent on this one...so far anyways. I could have missed it as some only put out their fragrance at one time of day...and I haven't been out back alot the last couple weeks. We have too much going on. I'm ready to hide out in the greenhouse these days...lol!

    It is night-fragrant, pollinated by a moth.

    I am still new to growing this kind. I'm not sure, but i'm guessing it would do fine.
