    Lovely. I like the green colour - does this turn white as it ages?

    For some reason you don't see that much African orchid, which is a pitty because these Angraecoids are so beautiful. This one too, not pure white but lush green. Thanks for sharing!

    Ed that is the most difficult question if your plant already mature I do believe the high light level and cooler atmosphere usually will induce buds formation, like my plant I put under shady I noticed quite a number bud blasted immediately after more light level after one another solid flower emerged from my observation.

    thank you I know it was a vague question but your answer was helpful, and perhaps the key to mine not blooming.

    Default Hope my little one does HALF as good as yours!

    Oh, Zainal, how lovely and DIFFERENT for Angrecoids! I don't know green ones, right off the top of my head.......an anomaly to be sure/in a GOOD way! I recently got one in a parcel as a "surprise" from someone I buy many of my nice orchids from. I didn't realize they get TALL, with "cane-like growth habit. How tall DO they get/how fast?. Grower said he thought he was sure it would be a good fit with much light/heat I can get on top shelf of my mini greenhouse - it actually looks even better this morning already - an anomaly too, as most go into that "temper tantrum" stage until they realize they're stuck there!
