Angraecum scottianum is a captivating orchid species known for its delicate beauty. It features elegant white flowers with a star-shaped lip, exuding a heavenly fragrance.

Angraecum scottianum is found in the island of Comoros, where it grows epiphytic in trees in open exposed areas at an altitude of 350 to 600 meters above sea level.

It is a small sized, hot to warm growing epiphyte with erect or pendant, elongated, cylindrical stems carrying 6 to 8, subcylindrical or terete, subulate, bicarinate, canaliculate leaves.

Scott's Angraecum blooms in the spring, summer and early fall on a 10 cm long, axillary, slender, mostly ascending raceme with scarious bracts and carrying fragrant, inverted, waxy, successively opening flowers with only one open at a time. The flowers are large, waxy, white and green, with a disproportionately large lip in the form of a sea shell and a very long spur.

The blooms are medium-sized and can reach a diameter of approximately 4 inches (10 cm). The petals and sepals are elongated, while the lip is broader and showcases intricate patterns. Angraecum scottianum is a sought-after plant for orchid enthusiasts and collectors who appreciate its unique charm.
