    Default Angraecum sesquipedale

    My "Sesgui" opened! Two flowers this year! Check out the length of the tail! The flower is 5''across and the spur is 11'' long. The flower will turn completely white as it matures. Nice fragrance too!

    Warm to intermediate temp,medium light (less than Catts, more than Phals), large bark mix, and water 1x per week. It is not too fussy at all. I nearly killed it once by leaving it in full sun and burning off most of the bottom leaves. It recovered very nicely.

    I can do that. I'll try this one. It'll probably do better than Angraecum leonis which has not bloomed for me yet.

    Thanks for your culture info.

    That's a real beauty, I've never thought of growing those. Looks like they could take up a lot of room...

    I don't know how big it gets eventually, but I've had mine in 6" pot for the last 3 years. It grows up at a slow pace. it is smaller than my standard Catts.

    WOW! Thats great! All you need now is a real Darwin's Moth to pollinate it. What a eye popper that one is.
