Angraecum Sesquipedale is in bloom

AngraecumFlash031816.JPGI purchased this Angraecum Sesquipedale (‘Humongous’ x ‘Giant’) from eBay vendor “Lucky Girl Orchids” on February 1, 2015.  It was in spike when it was delivered, and it has been fascinating watching the spike develop into a bud, and a flower.  Two days ago, I noticed that the bud was splitting, and overnight it opened.  It is greenish-white in color at present.







Angraecum031816.JPGI am showing two photos.  The first with a flash, and the second without a flash.  The flash brings out the green and yellow much more.

It smells incredibly good.
