    I need to find a way to post pics from the office. It takes forever at home on dialup.

    What beautiful flowers!

    I finally flowered this pretty little thing after growing it from a 1" leaf-span seedling. Took much longer than it should have, but it had been through many rough times.

    Aerangis splendida: aren't those the ones that are only pollinated by some kind of hawk moth with a realllllly long proboscius?

    Many of the Angreacum have the long spur. *Those are the ones fertilized by the moth you are refuring to with the long proboscius. *The Aerangis has that too so it would be safe to bet they are alot pollinated by something with a long proboscius. *There are many flowers with the long spur. *The spur only has a drop ot nector at the tip to intice the moth to stick its head into thew flower to get to the miniscule nector. *Orchids are so mean to their pollinators! *They don;t give them much to eat or the dupe them into pollinating them with mimicry.

    I have a couple in bloom I need to take pictures of and I will post later.
