    This is the first time I have photographed these two species together. Without scale they look fairly similar however, the Angraecum dwarfs the Microsaccus.

    The first photo shows Angraecum distichum on the left with Microsaccus griffithii on the right.

    Photos 2 and 3 are the Microsaccus.

    I grow these in the same conditions of intermediate-warm, bright light, daily summer water but dries quickly.

    Thanks for the comparison. I was just looking at my Macrosaccus griffithii this morning. Really a lovely thing.
