Aerangis fatuosa is a night fragrant orchid native to central Madagascar. Lovely compact plant that produces white crystalline flowers with a fresh floral scent. Prefers intermediate temperatures but can handle warm with enough watering. They do very well mounted near the lower light area of a greenhouse or terrarium. 

Blooming size. Blooms pictured are representative but are not from this plant. 

 

AERANGIS CARE INFO:

Potting mix: Fine bark or medium bark+sphagnum mix. Repot every 1-2 years as the media breaks down. Can be mounted on cork with sphagnum or tree fern. 

Light: Bright indirect-medium light. Window direction doesn't matter but harsh light will not be tolerated. Protect leaves from direct sun exposure. 

Water: Water frequently in hot months when media has dried slightly. High humidity will help prevent the media from drying out too quickly. Water at the base of the plant to prevent crown rot.

Temp: Cool-warm (50F min night, 85F max day).

Humidity: 60-90%, needs high humidity with good air circulation. 

Fertilizing: Light feeding year round. 1/4 strength urea-free fertilizer, every other watering as new roots and leaves emerge. Run clean room temperature tap water through the pot once monthly to prevent salt buildup. Decrease to every 3rd watering if leaf burning is observed.
