    The third species of this Angraecum related genus which I have flowered , and perhaps the first one just about worth showing - in terms of flower display for the plant size. I grow this in the darkest corner of my greenhouse - which it seems to like; I had thought so, but been in doubt , It will be joined by its near relatives now.
    Flowers quite large for the genus - some 2 inches across, and lasting very well ; it was in our Show 3 weeks ago, and looks good for another show at Wisley this coming week-end.

    I think allwhite flowers are fragrant - it goes with the territory.Maybe hybrids are an exception, or can be an exception, but no exceptions in species ?
