Large plants, blooming size Super easy to grow NOT in flower now, likely to bloom next winter
This is the species orchid, native to Madagascar, that was made famous by Charles Darwin – yes, that Darwin (The Origin of Species, The Voyage of the Beagle, etc.)
When Darwin first saw this orchid he predicted the existence of an insect with a tongue long enough to reach into the 10 to 12 inch nectar tube on the flower. The moth was later found, and given the species name “predicta.”
These are winter to late spring bloomers, putting out large, wonderful star-shaped flowers of white and pale green. The flowers are nicely fragrant at night.
You are purchasing a blooming size plant in a 3.5-inch pot with two growths. They stand about 15 or 16 inches above the bottom of the pot. We think it’s likely you'll see a flower next winter if properly grown. We will ship freshly repotted.
Angraecum is a genus in the Vanda family of orchids. They like fairly bright but indirect light. Grown indoors, an east or west window with a sheer curtain is fine.
Keep them moist but not sopping wet – you can pretty much grow these like a phalaenopsis. Fertilize about every three weeks with a weak solution. You can grow these in baskets or mounted, as well as in pots with regular orchid media.
The first picture shows a typical flower; the second picture shows the kind of plant you are bidding on. We have a number of these and we’ll pick out a nice one for you.
