If you are partial to green flowers, you’ll love this orchid! Angraecum calceolus is a small-sized orchid species from Madagascar, Mauritius, Mozambique, Reunion Islands, and the Seychelles. This plant is larger than many of the orchid species I’ve listed in my various terrarium planting lists. Angraecum calceolus is unlikely to be a compatible choice for glass bottle gardens; a more substantially sized terrarium, vivarium, or orchidarium would be required to comfortably accommodate this orchid and provide a suitable home that will present itself as lasting and sustainable accommodation, as the plant develops and matures.
Actiniopteris australis is a tender fern that requires warm temperatures to flourish. This pretty little fern can be found growing in the wild in a wide range of countries and locations, including: Madagascar, Australia, Africa, and Asia.
Producing very pretty, palm like fronds on a diminutive scale. Actiniopteris australis is a charming fern to add to your collection.
Actiniopteris australis is a miniature fern, that grows to just 15cm (6 inches) tall.
Angraecum cucullatum is a miniature, epiphytic orchid species that originates from the island of Reunion and Mauritius, where plants grow upon trees, in forested areas of the country.
Cultivated Angraecum cucullatum plants need to be grown under filtered, diffused light. This orchid species flourishes in warm temperatures, so it’s best to replicate the temperatures and conditions that this particular orchid species would experience in its natural environment.
Angraecum pectinatum is a miniature, epiphytic orchid species that originates from Madagascar, where this orchid can be found growing upon the branches and trunks of trees, growing in areas of humid forest.
This orchid species favours growing under filtered, diffused light, in a warm to hot environment, where the humidity levels are high, and there’s constant air circulation and continual air movement around the plant and its roots.
Aeranthes arachnites is a small sized, epiphytic orchid species, which originates from Madagascar and the Island of Reunion.
I have found that Aeranthes arachnites enjoys fairly bright, filtered, indirect light, warm temperatures, good air circulation, and high humidity. Aeranthes arachnites produces delicately fragrant flowers, which are borne on long, pendent flowering stems. This is a surprisingly floriferous orchid, the plant’s old stems can flower for a number years, new flowering stems are readily produced, and each flowering stem is quick to produce flowers, blooming in succession for most of the year.
Aerangis punctata is an epiphytic orchid species, which can be found growing in central highland Madagascar, and also on the island nation of Reunion, at elevations between 900m and 1500m.
Aerangis punctata grows in humid, evergreen forests, and in highland forests and scrubland, where this plant can be found growing upon both shrubs and trees. In its native environment, Aerangis punctata flowers from December through until March.
