Our first Angraecum, not really

Jun. 18, 2014: It’s very exciting to stumble upon a very unusual orchid (with a weird name) on eBay. You can usually win the auction cheaply since it’s doubtful anyone would actually search for it specifically. That’s exactly what happened with this plant.

Plectrelminthus caudatus
Plectrelminthus caudatus. We can’t even remember how we came upon the listing for this plant since there was absolutely no mention of the word “orchid” on the title or description:

(picture from Internet) The picture of the flowers immediately made us think of Angraecum which we’ve never really been interested in. Researching more about it piqued our interest. It’s a single species genus! So I guess this is our first Angraecum but not really.

Orchid count: #276
