Angraecum sesquipedale 4" pot
species - Madagascar
This is the famous "Darwin Orchid" also known as the 'Comet Orchid'. The specific name actually means 'foot and a half'. Flowers, 1-6 in number, can measure to 7" across and the spur (the long nectary at the back of the lip) to 14" and are fragrant at night. The plants prefer filtered light and warm nights (65 degrees and up) and produce flowers during winter months. Water and fertilize regularly.
The plants in this offering are planted in 4" plastic pots in a New Zealand's Orchiata bark mix. Average leafspan is 6". These plants are 1-2 years from first bloom and it should be understood that early bloomings may have only 1 or 2 flowers and will likely improve in both flower quantity and quality as the plant matures.
Also available in a 5" pot size with plants measuring an average of 12" in leafspan..
