Aerangis hyaloides – 365 days of orchids – day 1510

Aerangis hyaloides is the smallest flowered of all our Aerangis species and endemic to Madagascar. The species produces a massed flower spikes of densely packed little flowers and gives a wonderful display for its diminutive stature – the plant here is in a 5.5cm pot. The species is found in warm mossy forests in shade and needs protection from the sun in summer to thrive.

We have had this species flowering in-vitro in the past, and like many miniature orchids is very fast to flower from seed. Flowers this small are a challenge to pollinate but we hope to have more seedlings coming on soon.
