    Default Podangis dactyloceras

    One of my little 'uns. In a small plastic basket - 4 inch maybe ? Flowers about 1`cm across. probably only two spikes there , but lots of branches. A favourite of mine - it just hangs up, like so much else, gets sprayed ( daily at present) and dipped weekly, and does its stuff like this. Keeps on promising to produce side growths, but so far they have never got very far. I'll have to go and try a bit of flattery, tell it what a beautiful thing it is ( not flattery at all) , and see if it can be coaxed...
    I don't know anything about its place in the orchid world ; many years ago I used to have a little book by the late David Sander I think, or was it the one by Ames ? which had a pull out section at the end, with all the orchids divided into tribes - like Laelia, Oncidia etc, and then the genera listed in each tribe. I don't know of anything like that now. Alas, when I sold my first orcod collection - some time about 1976 because I was moving from a house and greenhouse in UK to a flat with no garden in Germany - (to start a new office for my firm ) , I sold my books as well as my orchids - I thought that was the end of my orchid career- but the infection is not so easily cleared from the blood - and a couple of years later I started my present collection of orchids and books - but never found the one's mentioned.

    Oh, my! How precious is that?! They are so lovely, and definitely going on my list - before Branka can see them! Be sure to tell her that she is admired from afar, as well!

    It belongs to the Angraecoid family. This is the only species in the genus and it is a great species.
    This species doesn't have branching spikes, so your plant has more than two spikes...

    FWIW, this species doesn't like to be kept too wet, especially in winter. I grow mine on cork mount without any moss and only water it every other day even in the summer months here, slightly drier in winter.

    Thanks for that Tom ; in that case mine has 5 spikes ! Not bad for a little single fan growth.
