Angraecum magdalenae

Angraecum magdalenae


Like many other Agraecum, this species (Angraecum madgalenae) comes from Madagascar where it is found growing in step cliffs in among crevices and cracks, exposed to full sunlight and strong wind. As such, a drop in night temperature seems to help it thrive and bloom.

Care

Angraecum magdalenae


I cultivate my Angraecum magdalenae potted in a mix of bark and perlite 50/50 keeping it moist so that the compost temperature remains low but allowing plenty of air to evaporate the water away. A bright position with morning direct sunlight is where I keep it.

A superb, lemon-like night scent exales out of the flower at night time showing that they are polinated by nocturnal butterflies!
