Podangis dactylocerasThis is a small to miniature warm to intermediate epiphyte, and occasional lithophyte, from Western Tropical Africa to Angola and Tanzania where it grows from  750 to 1 950 meters. A beautiful fan shaped species with flowers that look almost like sheer white glass and with a prominent spur. Each short inflorescence carry several (5-20) flowers nestled within the leaves. The flowers measure about 5 mm wide and last a really long time and is a very nice contrast to the green leaves, reminding me a little of Lilly of the Valley flowers in the spring and I like it a lot. It enjoys humid and semi-shaded growing conditions and want to dry out a bit between waterings. I grow mine mounted on cork in the intermediate vivarium, humid and medium bright.
