One of our favorite orchid blooms, Aerangis luteoalba var. rhodosticta has spikes of glowing white blooms, each dotted with a bright orange center. While not in bloom, this miniature African orchid has a thin leaves arranged in a fan shape, perpendicular to the vertical growing surface, with a slightly gray or glaucous appearance. 


• Light: Medium to bright, indirect light.
• Water: Mounted specimens prefer frequent waterings (every 1-2 days) in the summer and slightly less frequent waterings (every 2-4 days) in the winter. Soak orchid mounts in room-temperature water or run water over the roots until fully saturated.
• Considerations: This plant prefers to be mounted or be in a very loose and chunky mix. Pot growers find success planting this orchid in 100% orchid bark or loose sphagnum moss with frequent waterings. The roots on this plant are sensitive to rot when grown in a fine or soggy substrate. Aerangis luteoalba var. rhodosticta is free-flowering throughout the year, and responds well to slightly drier conditions the months after flowering.
