Angraecum didieri September 2008

Angraecum didieri has now bloomed for the forth time since being placed in the tank. It appears to be on a regular schedule - as soon as the old blossom dies, a new bud forms at another joint. It is still adding new leaves as well. It is on a steady diet of Greencare MSU formula fertilizer mixed specifically for RO water. I mix to 125ppm Nitrogen. All the Angraecoides get this mix every other day.
In this photo (above) you can see blossom number 5 just growing. It should be ready to pop out about the time that number 4 blossom is dieing.
Here's blossom number four. Very well formed. I think I already said that this is fragrant at night.
