New Leaf on Angraecum leonis

Angraecum leonis

     There's a new leaf starting on my Angraecum leonis.  For this slow growing orchid, that's a big development. Even better, the orchid shows no sign of shedding any of its lower leaves--it might actually be growing bigger!

  1. Hurray for new leaf! It does have impressive roots too. Is it blooming size for this species?

    1. The vendor claimed blooming size. But then they sent me this orchid which was nearly dead. Depending on whether I have the Madagascar or Comoro version it could either be fully mature size or still very small. So I really don't know when it will recover+grow enough to bloom.
