Angraecum bancoense

Family: Orchidaceae

Countries: Africa, Cameroon, Congo

Angraecum bancoense is a miniature, epiphytic orchid species, which can be found growing on trees, in very humid areas, in various parts of Africa.  This pretty miniature orchid species is often found growing upon deciduous trees, near ponds or waterfalls, or in rainforest areas, but this orchid can also be found growing in reserves and mountainous forests.  Plants flourish in soft, gentle lighting and semi shaded areas.  Avoid harsh, intense, or direct light.

At first glance, Angraecum bancoense looks very similar to Angraecum distichum; these orchid species are often confused.  Angraecum distichum plants tend to be taller than Angraecum bancoense plants, but the more easily recognisable differences can be seen in the appearance of these two orchid species’ flowers.
