Angraecum didieri

Angraecum dideri is one of the smaller Angraecums with very large flowers for the size of the plant, but it is by no means a miniature, and for that reason I have sold my plant when it was finished blooming.  It also puts out roots everywhere which attach to everything, at least in my conditions and was taking up way too much room in my plant case.

The plant grows to 20 cm tall and carries one or two 6 cm flowers per spike.  The flowers are even larger if the 10 cm spur is included in the measuring.  The flowers have a beautiful crystalline texture and a strong, sweet scent.  They are best grown mounted and are tolerant of cool to warm temperatures, blooming once a year for me in early summer.
