    30 or 40 years ago my parents started with 1 Angraecom eburneum in a pot. It got big, fell sideways, and was divided into 3 plants, each in its own pot. These grew big, fell sideways, and formed keikis. About that time I inherited my parents’ house and yard. Now the original plastic pots are buried beneath an Agraecom eburneum clump which blooms from late December through mid-February.

    Wow, thanks for sharing this picture. This is a wonderful landscape orchid.

    Angraecum eburneum (Latin eburneus means white as ivory) is a species orchid native to Madagascar, Comoros, Seychelles, Kenya and Tanzania.
    It is known and the “Comet Orchid” and has a great fragrance. It’s pollinator in nature is bats in search of nectar in the long spur of the flower.

    The Comet orchid name comes from the white petals and long spur that resembles a shooting star.
