2.25" - NOT In-Spike ($35.00)

Long strands of pure white flowers. These plants can easily have more than 20 flowers per spike. Easy to grow. Water as it just dries at roots and treat like a Phalaenopsis. 

Aerangis citrata is native to Madagascar. It has fine roots requiring even moisture year round. It can grow in a wide range of temperatures from hot to cool and prefers shady conditions. We think this plant grows best in either clay or plastic pots and wants to approach dryness between watering. Feed every third to fourth time you water if planted in moss. The long, many flowered spikes can emerge in spring, summer or fall and will easily flower twice per year if not three times per year. The plant has leaves about 3-inches long and will develop side growths allowing it to be divided occasionally. These newer strains we are growing are even better than the picture presented, as the parents have been selected for larger flower size with good shape and higher flower count. Basically, you can grow it like a Phalaenopsis.

An orchid plant may arrive in bud, in bloom or in various stages of in-spike development. A plant in-spike can take anywhere from 1 week to 2 months before flowers begin to open. We are one of the few nurseries to ship orchids in spike or bloom. Most of the time our carefully wrapped orchids in-spike or in-bloom arrive in good condition. However, due to conditions beyond our control, we cannot guarantee that all flower spikes, flowers, or buds will arrive in perfect condition.

An orchid will arrive while it is not currently spiking or blooming due to being either before or after its bloom season. Check the "Bloom Season" information on the product page to see when the plant is expected to spike and flower. Many orchid lovers and hobbyists prefer plants that are not in-spike in order to watch the first stages of the spike emerging all the way through to the reward of the bloom! If you are sending a plant as a gift, you generally want to send the plant in-spike unless the gift receiver would prefer otherwise.
