Aerangis seegeri is a miniature orchid species from Eastern Madagascar and Nosy Boraha, a small island located near the East Coast of Madagascar (Nosy Boraha used to be known as île Sainte-Marie). These orchids grow in the coastal forests of these plant rich areas, at a range of altitudes from as low as sea level, to as high as 1500m above sea level.
A miniature epiphytic orchid species; Aerangis seegeri can be found growing upon the trunks (and occasionally on the branches) of trees, in forests found near the ocean. Plants produce long strings of pendant, star-shaped flowers; the blooms hang rather decoratively below the plant’s leaves. Mature plants produce a greater quantity of flowers, which are held on numerous stems that dangle underneath the plants. Aerangis seegeri flowers are a gorgeous orangey bronze colour, they’re very handsome indeed.
Aerangis seegeri plants favour warm to hot temperatures and filtered, indirect light. Plants require humid growing conditions.
