We love aeranthes...it
is certainly not the most common nor readily available genera. And this
is a rather uncommon species from Madagascar. These are mid-sized plants
which have inflorescence that produces blossoms successively for months
[do NOT cut off the inflorescence!]. Each flower is long lasting, fragrant
and has an exquisite form. The form is more interesting than my photo
shows - Iíve included this one to show the size of the flower; larger
than many aeranthes blossoms. Grow them in intermediate light, intermediate
to warm temperatures and regular watering.
This is from our breeding program. One parent is from Isobyl la Croix
and the other is from Madagascar.
