I live in: Ireland • Éire
My nearest city or region is: Wexford
My hardiness zone is: 9 (usually)
Finally my Angraecum Crestwood 'Tomorrow Star' has flowered.
It's only one bloom, so doesn't hold a candle to Ed's amszing offerings, but it's mine and I am veryhappy with it.
The flower opened quite green but now I can see the white developing on the lip.
No nocturnal scent yet but I'm waiting....

Lovely. Everyone always talks about how wonderful this smells after dark, but I find it quite unpleasant.

Thanks, Chris. It is a big plant but there are smaller ones.

Well, I'm sure I'll find good homes for mine if that happens.

That's a cracking bloom Rachel, do you grow it indoors?
Now I'm glad mine didn't sell when I offered it up on here. it's even bigger now- something to look forward to.

Yes, I grow it on a windowsill, Barnie.
