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.

Steve

Well done Steve!
A very beautiful Angraecum with a special colour for this genus.
Is it fragrant?
Our Angraecum viguieri refuses to bloom and we have it since 2011.
At first I thought it didn't bloom because it was a young plant but after so many years I can't explain it.
I would appreciate few tips on your success. :)

Thanks Terry although the true colour is far better than shown in my photo, it's more of a caramel/orange.

:? I beginning to think my photos are affected by the "blue" spectrum of my HID lights making the colours look slightly "dirty" in photos, think I'll have to try moving them to a naturally-lit room when photoing?

Hi Christos,
I don't detect any fragrance, it has flowered every year since I got it in 2016 and it is now about 15cm high.
No special treatment, potted in clay balls mixed with a small amount of compost, watered once a week, misted every day.
My orchids are grown in a North facing room so receive no sun at all but it gets a light measurement of 3500 fc provided by the HID lights.
Its grown about a metre away from my two-spiked Seidenfadenia (which I know you can grow & flower) so I'm surprised yours hasn't flowered once yet?
I have seen them with many more flowers than just my two flowers, but they were on bigger plants so I hope I get more flowers as the plant matures.......and I hope you get one too !

Steve

Hi Steve,
We follow pretty much the same way of cultivation.
My Angraecum viguieri has 17cm height and it is growing close to the Seidenfadenia mitrata like yours.
I hope some day I will notice the most awaited spike.
Thank you for your reply! :D

I hope it flowers for you very soon Christos and doesn't turn out to be one of those plants which doesn't flower...... which I think some of us have in our collections !
(Mine is a Bulbo thaiorium, bought with 1 flower about 10 years ago, lots of new growth but has never flowered since then )
