Description

Microcoelia exilis

Relatively widespread, these can be found from Kenya to KwaZulu-Natal South Africa and in southern Madagascar. It is a true twig epiphyte and seems to possess nearly complete disregard for whatever it might be mounted on. An occasional root or two might attach to its host to stabilize its growth but the vast majority of the plant thrives in moist open air. This suggests that water quality is critical and frequent application is a necessity if you want to grow it well. We have ours on both manzanita branches and cork with no pad or moisture-absorbing material of any kind. It seems to tolerate fairly low to intermediate light levels as well; ours get eastern light.
