Well yesterday I received here in France my modest little parcel of angraecoids from Malala in Madagascar. This is what you get under almost ideal circumstances; a decent time of the year, plants traveling as luggage in a carrier airplane, being wrapped up only a couple of days before the trip and not being over watered. Along with a friendly yet meaningful email to Michelle, saying you expect plants with roots and you will be not so happy if they don't have any . Going through custom was hassle free as we had all the paperwork, I collected the plants at the airport and the plants were in a terrarium soon after I got back home. Of the eight plants I could afford, one is blooming and two have spikes.. only one is in a condition that is not really acceptable. Of course to the casual reader those plant look like sickly twigs but for those accustomed to imports from Madagascar, they will look, as they look to me, pretty good.
