    Default Angraecum leonis

    The extra cold, cold snap we've had for the last few weeks hasn't helped this one open for me.
    It's already lost one flower due to it. 1st time it's actually done this even though we have had lots of cold as it is Winter here.
    None of the other Angraecums are liking it either for that matter.

    Love it
    Maybe it likes cool not cold environment. The plant itself looks healthy though!

    It definitely is Li. Particularly when small. It hates with a passion being repotted, it needs to be potted on with as least disturbance of the roots as possible.

    Good to know. I purchased one in the spring of this year. Hope to get it to bloom as nicely as yours.
