Endemic to Malawi, Aergs.
distincta is an excellent plant to have due to its greater tolerance of
changing conditions than other Aerangis (making it easier to grow well).
It also has one of the largest flowers of any Aerangis. The sepals, petals
and spur are almost always tinged with salmon-pink at the tips, and the
spur/nectary is nearly straight. We have some plants that are more strongly
colored salmon-pink than others; there is some variation, but all are
beautiful! They’re all FRAGRANT. They’ll grow in a fairly wide range of
light levels, but look the best and bloom wonderfully in intermediate
These are from our breeding program!
