That has a nice amount of flowers! They look very crystalline too.
Those are so pretty when in bloom, mine just finished.
Gilles, absolutely stunning. I have resisted up to now, but I must get some of these Aerangis beauties.
Mine doesn't open up like yours... Guess I'm doing something wrong?
Please tell us how you grow it. Maybe I'll try it again.
It has direct sun in the mornings, the roots need to dry quickly after watering so I just add a few natural moss on the bark.
A lot of water in spring and summer, less in autumn and really a few in winter.
Thanks, Gilles. I'll be looking at the show in San Francisco next week to see if I can find one.
if you still can't find one at show, I can send you one when spring is here.
and I agree with Gilles, so good air movement is important.
Thanks, Tom! I may take you up on it.
Gladly...Just let me know.
It should be in bloom soon..., I send you a photo if I am in the mood to do some photos.
Very pretty, Gilles! Where is your plant from? I'm asking because my first hyaloides (died abruptly after flowering on 12 inflorescences) was similar to yours in that the flowers were open for some time and also the flower shape. Now I'm growing a seedling with rounder petal apices which flowers so briefly that the first flowers fade by the time the last ones open.
I have this one from a friend, Dominique Karadjoff!!
I have some seedlings blooming too, coming from Junginger, maybe as yours...??
Pixietoe, I'm led to believe these can bloom themselves to death. I've bloomed some that are so floriferous that they don't have the energy to continue after such a flush it seems.
Yes, that must be what happened...
Gilles, do your seedlings differ from this plant here?
No, they look quite similar.
