Angræcum cultriforme

This delightful diminutive angraecoid orchid species is native to Kenya,Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia Zimbabwe, and Kwa-Zulu Natal province of South Africa. It gives off wonderful nocturnal spicy-butterscotch scent, strongest right after the sun goes down and on into the night.

 

In my vivarium it is a trouble-free grower and free-flowering, producing many flowers sequentially from nodes that produce repeat, multiple inflorescences.
