Podangis dactyloceras

Family: Orchidaceae

Countries: Africa, Angola, Cameroon, Ghana, Papua New Guinea, Tanzania, Uganda, Zaire

Podangis dactyloceras is a miniature orchid species, which originates from Africa, Ghana, Uganda, Tanzania, and Zaire, where this orchid grows as an epiphyte, growing upon trees, near waterfalls and rivers, in evergreen rainforests.

Podangis dactyloceras is a miniature orchid species that grows best in warm to hot temperatures.  These plants require a humid environment and filtered light; allow your plant’s roots to dry out between waterings.  Podangis dactyloceras can be mounted on cork, or grown in a pot filled with coarse orchid compost that includes large pieces of bark.  I prefer to grow my plant mounted on a section of cork bark.

Podangis dactyloceras produces a number of long lasting, white, translucent, glass-like flowers that open simultaneously.  Plants tend to flower from spring time through until autumn.

This Podangis dactyloceras specimen was very kindly given to me by a friend.
