    This is the 2nd year blooming of this tiny Aerangis. It is such a tiny plant with "huge" flowers. The entire plant is about 2" across and the flowers are over an inch. There are 4 flowers this year! I find the flowers do not last long, only about 7-10 days.
    I grow this in my intermediate greenhouse and mist it daily. I have noticed that the plants can get dehydrated when blooming....so i now mist twice a day!

    Enjoy!
    Pete

    That's a lot of flower for a little plant to sustain. You've done a great job.

    I agree, that is very nicely grown and bloomed. Thanks, Peter.

    I like this bloom best when the spur is still all coiled up.

    Lovely species but I wish the flowers would last a bit longer though. Nicely done, Pete.
