Aerangis fastuosa

Aerangis fastuosa is a small epiphytic orchid from Madagascar. It is found in nature growing at relatively high elevations (3000 feet above sea-level or more) thus grows as an intermediate in home collections. I grow mine at high humidity with frequent automatic mistings and relatively low light (750-1000 foot candles). I tried higher light, but the leaves turned maroon color. You can see some of the residual coloring in the images above.
