    Nice bloom. Why do you think that name was given? How large is the flower?

    The flower has just blossomed and has not yet reached its full development, it reaches even 11 cm, down to root of the first leaf is developing another bud.
    Angraecum elephantinum Schltr. - Notizbl. Bot. Garten. Berlin vii. 330 (1919) Section: Perrierangraecum etymological origin of the species name: the size of its flowers, much larger than those of the plant itself.

    That's what I thought... Love these types like the aloifolium (I have only one) and the didieri.
