Aerangis punctata is one of the Angraecoides originating from Madagascar. This recently described epiphytic orchid (1986) is found in the center of the island at about 4600 feet (1400m). It wants strong, diffused light (1200-2000 ft-candles), strong air movement at all times and rather high humidity. Best grown in a humidity-controlled environment.
Masd. veitchiana 'Prince de Galle' x Masd. princeps
Masd. Maui Prince (Masd. tonduzil x Masd. princeps)
These are not in the tank, but up in my south window box. While these have nothing to do with growing and blooming orchids in the tank, I think they are beautiful, none-the-less. These are considered "warm-tolerant" Masd. (Masdevallia are in the Pleurothallis association and generally require cool temperatures for growth.) The Masd. I grow are mostly tolerant of temps up to the low 80s (F).
We are Bluegreen Vacation Club owners that enjoy vacations in new areas and getting involved doing new activities. For Ross, this usually includes photography--especially local flora. For both of us, this includes sampling the local food and shopping. We are always looking for that perfect dessert as well as another hat or t-shirt or, perhaps, a candle or two.
