Aeranthes arachnites

Family: Orchidaceae

Countries: Africa, Madagascar, Reunion Island

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.
