name is The Magnificent Aerangisnot bad for a common
name, eh? Its native to Madagascar but is much more enjoyable in
your private collection. Fred Hillerman says that Everything about
Aerangis fastuosa is the epitome of neatness, and this sleek little plant
is truly as pretty as a picture,... Its a small
plant with oversized white flowers (1-1/2"). The blossoms are sweetly
fragrant both in the afternoon and night. Fastuosa needs warm shady
conditions to thrive. Given proper care it blooms reliably every spring.
These REALLY need a dormant period [after blooming], but must never be
allowed to get overly dry.
