Angraecum bosseri 5" NFS
Angraecum bosseri (now accepted as Angraecum sesquipedale var. bosseri)
species - Madagascar
The foliage of Ang. bosseri is somewhat different than Ang. sesquipedale and the former is said to bloom twice a year instead of once. In other respects it is the same as Ang. sesquipedale. It is a warm grower with night to day temperatures running about 65-85 degrees or more. It likes bright indirect light, humidity and even watering and fertilizing year-round.
Fragrant flowers are found 1-6 on a somewhat drooping stem and can be up to 7" across. The most famous aspect of the flower, though, is the spur or nectary that forms the rearward part of the lip - it can be as long as 14"!
