Hi

Could anyone identify this orchid by his leaves???
The height is 25 cm (10 inch), the leaves are 17 cm (7 inch) tall and 2 cm (1 inch) wide.
I think (I hope) it's an Angraecum germinyanum, but I'm not sure. Here is a picture:

I hope someone can help me…

Gerben

The probability is that it is the variety sold to you, but to be sure you will need to wait on the first flower. Fingers crossed that will be fairly soon. You must have a good chance over the next year.

Coming in late to this Post so maybe your plant has already flowered and you were able to identify it ?

To me, the leaves look a bit too long for ang. germinyanum but it looks suspiciously more like my ang. vigueri, and as Alec says, until it flowers, it's anyone's guess.

No, it has not flowered yet...
I think it's to young to flower. When it flowers, I will post a photo!
