Angraecum leonis getting watered in a vase
I've had my angraecum leonis for a year now, and it really hasn't done much in that time. It dropped a leaf soon after I bought it, and then grew a new one. Most of its activity over the past year involved root growth. The orchid arrived with a rather poor root system, and most of the roots it has now are newly grown.
Overall, the orchid has been doing well in vase culture. While the old leaves are wrinkled from dehydration, the newest leaf is unwrinkled. Its root system now seems fairly substantial.
However, I want my orchid to thrive and to flower. Looking around for tips on how to grow it better, I was reminded that in nature these orchids from Madagascar experience a summer monsoon season. In response, I've started watering the angraecum twice daily. Once the weather cools off in the Fall, I'll scale back again to once daily watering (and maybe less for the duration of the winter).
