    Beautiful angraecum. Once named Angraecum sesquipedale var angustifolium and some people still refer to it as such , a smaller variety of sesquipedale.

    Beautiful. Alas, this would have to be considerably smaller as a fully mature plant than sesquipedale before I could even consider getting one. (Such big plants they tend to be.)

    Lovely! Do they have that amazing sesquipedale frangrance in the evening? About how big is this? (I have had to give away 3 sesquipedales when they threatened to overtake my living room!)

    Thanks everyone for viewing!
    In fact it is not so large. The spurs are less than 25cm. It has fragrance, but not as good as imagined. Maybe some moth likes it?
