    Default Aerangis luteo-alba Var Rhodistica

    I purchased this and it had a spike on it at the time. However, it took quite a while for it to do anything. I read it likes pal conditions where I put it under lights and hoped it would stay alive as my last one mounted died. Well here is the result. I am wondering after it blooms if I should mount it as I have seen most pictures of it grown that way. What are your suggestions. I live when its not winter in humid warm conditions. I could grow inside under lights or in a new greenhouse which I am not certain of the conditions as it gets warmer. Please, please give me suggestions.Name:  Aerangis - 1.jpg

    That's great, Monica!

    If you got it to bloom, why do you want to change how you grow it? You certainly CAN mount it, but you'll need to water it very frequently to keep up.

    I think they do better mounted. I have a biloba and seem to be doing well with Phalaenopsis. (medium light and high humidity) and almost daily watering.

    Like the look of these very much but have never grown one. If you look at the plant on the IOSPE it gives a pretty good description of the conditions required. Although I have seen some pretty lame requirements written in there for other plants.
