Aerangis biloba

Family: Orchidaceae

Countries: Africa, Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Togo

Aerangis biloba is a small sized, epiphytic orchid species, which is endemic to Africa, where this plant grows on the branches of trees that grow in humid forests and woodlands.

Before I grew Aerangis biloba myself, I was previously under the impression that Aerangis biloba would only grow in very low light levels, in very shaded conditions, however, I have found that Aerangis biloba will happily grow under bright light as well as in partial shade.  If you’re growing Aerangis biloba, I would advise you to take care when choosing a position for your plant – avoid a location where your plant could receive harsh, direct light, it’s important to provide filtered light, especially during the middle of the day, when the sunlight is at its strongest.  Aerangis biloba enjoys warm temperatures and high humidity; it’s really important to provide your plant with a very humid environment. 

Aerangis biloba is small sized orchid that produces up to twenty, fragrant, beautiful white flowers, which are held on pendent racemes.  Aerangis biloba is a very decorative plant.
