Observations and images describing my orchid-growing hobby and the process I use to bring miniature orchids into blossom.

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.
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.
