Aerangis modesta - long inflorescence with many fragrant white flowers

 Aerangis modesta
     We especially like Fred Hillerman's description of the fragrance of this aerangis "Half a dozen plants in bloom produce a truly overpowering spicy aroma. The flowers begin to be fragrant on the second night after opening, and by the following night they are in their full glory." Not bad if you have an interest in fragrant orchids!!! They thrive when grown on plaques and though plaques require more consistent attention than potted plants, when in bloom, the arching sprays from a plaque grown orchid is a graceful and beautiful sight!
