Aeranthes albidiflora is a species of orchid native to Madagascar, and not much is actually known about it.

Take a good look at this little flower, because it may already be extinct in the wild due to deforestation and illegal collection of wild plants.

Orchids are some of my favorites. I find their life strategies so fascinating. I'm hoping I find some wild prairie varieties in the next few months.

@SolanumGF
It’s always exciting when you can find them growing in the wild!

@InvaderXan
I have found a few in past years. I've come across a variety of Lady's Slippers and Lady's Tresses.
Here's a Fairy Slipper (Calypso bulbosa) I found a year or two ago.

I got pretty excited when I found them. It was an accidental find while doing something completely different for work.
