Topic: Angraecums

Tom Kuligowski is an avid orchid grower, specializes in Angraecums, award-winning photographer for 45+ years, (tkangcm@live.com) , www.angraecums.blogshot.com, www.facebook.com/tkangraecums.


Angraecums tend to be known for their beautiful, showy flowers, many that are fragrant at night.  Some can even become fantastic specimen plants in just a couple of years.  With both species and several sought after crosses, the Angraecums offer some very unique shapes along with the most pristine white in any of the orchids.  The amazing fact people aren't aware of, is that they can thrive in South Florida's sub-tropical weather or on a windowsill in the not so warm north, if given the chance.  This presentation will provide both hobbyists and serious growers with fundamental guidelines to grow these beauties successfully and n turn, grace you with years of enjoyment.  All of the photographs within the presentation are of plants from his collection.  Many of them showing the various growth stages (from seedlings to the first time bloomers to specimen plants).
