    Default Angraecum distichum

    This one was a royal pain in the hind quarters to get a decent photo. The flower is about 0.5cm across. The camera has issues capturing details with a flower this small and white. The glare of light off the flower seems to wash out the finer details.

    Very nice. White flowers aso difficult to photograph and the small size makes it twice as hard.

    Wow. This is a really unusual looking plant. It is pretty, but it kind of looks like a vegetative hedge trimmer that has caught a white flower in-between its 'teeth.' I like it.
