    Big difference in the shapes and sizes of of these two individuals! I'm not sure how widely this species is distributed, but I'm guessing that these are regional variations?

    You can find it from 100 to 1500m, so you are certainly right.

    Not a lot, they are in quite shade.
    If I give them too much light, the leaves color change and becomes more brown-red....

    Has anyone checked Louisana Orchid Connection's offering for Madagascan imports? Not sure if it's coming from Malala or not. Seems like different offerings, like the Aerangis fastuosa v. Francoisii.

    LOC was a vendor at the Atlanta Orchid Society Orchid Show last month. When speaking with them they said they now have another connection in Madagascar that has a similar operation to Malala. I'm not sure if that is the source for all of their recent offerings, but they do plan to put together a large open-order for import, similar to what Botanica does with Malala. I'm not sure how far off that is but was instructed to email [email protected] to say that I would like to be included - I haven't heard back just yet.

    Look on their site. They have a big offering for the Redlands show in Fl. 50% down.

    John has informed me today that the Redlands order is closed. They do plan on doing intermittent imports though.

    Well, I'll have to talk to Tin about being notified next time.

    In regards to the Francoisii form, I stumbled on this:

    Unfortunately, all my French is forgotten. Would be interesting to know the contents of the notes. If you wanted to look at more herbarium slides of fastuosa; Genre : Aerangis , Collection : p , Épithète spécifique : fastuosa

    The notes don't give any interessant information, only the place where it has been collected, the name of the collector and the place where it has been cultivated.

    I just bought a blooming size Aerangis fastuosa online today. It was noted 'From Madagascar'....does that mean native to there or collected from there? I was checking the forums for tips on how to mount these and found this forum, which I thought was ironic. I'm new to these, any good tips for successful culture?

    It could mean that the plant was imported from Madagascar or it could just mean that the species occurs in Madagascar. I would ask the vendor.
