    I almost didn't photograph this one. But then I started thinking about how disappointed in me that Breeze would be and the guilt was too much. I read on Jay's site that this is a hot grower. Odd thing is that I grow it I/C. A few of the leaves are a bit rough but it grows good and blooms well. It is a nice compact plant and a welcome plant in my collection.

    Night fragrant.

    Thanks folks.

    Eddie, I hear that a lot from you. I know that you have some alive plants, as I have seen the picture of your grow space. What are you growing these days?

    Watch out, Eddie. I've seen this before. He sucks you in with his false concern then he laughs in your face and scoffs at every photo you post.

    I'm worried about Floozo. He's usually on this kinda post like stink on a hippy.

    Wooyay....mine is spiking as usual at this time of year. Fastuosa is certainly one of the easier Angs to bloom and beyond a doubt one of the most reliable bloomers at this time of year. It is amongst the two or three that I would recommend to all beginner Ang growers.

    wtf is floozo anyway? I like juvenile nicknames but i like to at least have a clue what it means. Is it somehow like...floof + breeze + ummm...oh? I could understand a floof reference since floof is the opposite of Angs...or is that Bulbos? Anyway, I'm not sure if it would actually be funnier if I knew what it meant, but i would be less curious if i knew. TIA

    Forrest - we lost a lot of plants the first 2 or 3 years after moving to this house. Combination of many factors that led to us losing interest for a while.

    Hello Forrest that beautiful,
    I tried twice to grow this species but it is prohibitive for my environment, the roots and the need for replacement of air does not allow me to find a way to grow it in my house.
