We were recently reminded of just how lovely this rare species of Madagascar is.  Pure white, waxy blooms grace plants with dark green foliage. Unlike a number of other Angracoids, these blooms will be fragrant with a spicy-sweet perfume during the day with the height of scent being reached in evening. And what a scent it is! Flowers can last for weeks in good culture.


The foliage on Angraecum magdalenae is very dark green, with an almost leathery texture, and rather compact even when mature.  Usually plants reach approximately 12" in height, plus they will send out basal keikis as they age.


Growing Suggestions:  We recommend these for advanced growers, or collectors experienced with plants needing specific growing requirments.  In nature, plants are generally found under extremely bright light, though slightly protected by the tress they grow on or under.  Young seedlings like these should be given bright, indirect light as much as is possible (avoiding sunburn) until they are bit bigger. As plants reach flowering size, more light can be tolerated and is needed to induce buds.  Intermediate to warm temperatures are preferred, with a sharp day to night difference.  Plants should be grown in long-lasting, well draining media or in baskets with some roots exposed. Repot only when needed and disturb them as little as possible. Angraecum magdalenae should be given a near dry spell over the winter when summer growths are complete.  Heavy mistings are enough, until spring returns when plants should receive frequent watering again.


We are currently offering seedlings of this species, established in 2" net pots. They should not be moved into new containers until next spring.  We expect these plants to reach flowering size is approximately 2-3 years.
