another Aerangis with confusion surrounding its name/identity. The correct
name is fuscata, but it is often seen as Aerangis umbonata. We imported
some of each name from Madagascar in 2008...and the plants are nothing
alike. The ones called umbonata look like this; like one we got from Fred
Hillerman in the 80s called umbonata (also likely brought in from Madagascar).
They are miniature; with a blooming sized plant being 2" to 2-1/2"across.
The flowers are nothing short of SPECTACULAR!
Many plants sold as Aerangis fuscata are in fact Aerangis spiculata; a
much larger plant with the "birds in flight" flowers.
