Aerangis arachnopus is an orchid species from tropical Africa. In the wild, Aerangis arachnopus orchids grow as part of the ecosystem in evergreen forests in the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, and Zaire. Aerangis arachnopus plants are usually found in a range from 400m to 1000m above sea level.
Like many orchids, Aerangis arachnopus plants grow as epiphytes. Aerangis arachnopus orchids don’t grow in the soil, as terrestrial plants do; instead, epiphytic plants use their roots to attach themselves to the branches and trunks of trees.
