Angraecum distichum – 365 days of orchids – day 952

We have a number of miniatures flowering and one of the most unusual is this miniature Angraecum with 5mm flowers and little stems less than a centimetre across.

This is one of the species we have seen in Rwanda growing in wet forest at 1500m. The species has a wide distribution right across tropical Africa and is found growing in shade in rainforests.

We find that the species does best mounted in shade in our Warm Asia section where it flowers every summer with its small long lasting and fragrant flowers.
