Not in flower yet but the purpose of the photo was not for the flower but to show the size of the bud in comparison to the size of the plant.
The plant is not quite 6"/15cm high, yet the bud (if its spur was straightened) would be bigger !
It certainly gives its stable-mate Ang. didieri a run for its money in bud to plant ratio.

The first bud now opened, I bought this last year and it had 1 flower, this year will be two, more next year ???
I thought the flowers would last longer than they do but these aren't as thick and waxy as some of the larger Angraecums but this will be there for about two weeks.
Due to my rubbish photos, the actual colour is a very nice honey/caramel colouring.
