Aerangis distincta

Endemic to Malawi, Aerangis 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 conditions.

Our breeding stock and some of our divisions are from Isobyl la Croix, who collected and described the species in 1987. She stated that “The epithet distincta was chosen because its bilobed leaves, shaped rather like the tail of a fish, differ from those of any other species in the genus.”
