    Think of this as a tinier version of Angraecum distichum. Had it since 2005. Flowers are about 1/8" long, always bloom in pairs. They only last a few days but it blooms many times throughout the year, and always produces flushes of blooms which open at the same time all over the plant.

    Growing it intermediate, moist, bright shade.
