365 days of orchids – day 252 – Aerangis articulata

This large flowered species comes from Madagascar and Comoros Islands where it grows in shade on large trees.

The flowers are very fragrant at night to attract its butterfly pollinator and are pendulous so the plant does well in a basket.

We have had leaf burn from bright sunlight and so grow the plant well shaded in Warm Asia.
