365 days of orchids – day 232 – Gongora bufonia


We have had at least one Gongora in flower all this year and so it is time to post another species. Gongora bufonia is a medium sized plant but one that produces lots of long flower spikes. The flowers are smallish but give a great display. The species is found in Colombia and Brazil and with us flowers in the summer (the winter in its natural habitat)

As with all our gongoras we grow plants in baskets and keep them well watered all year. We find it easier to manage baskets on a bench until flower spikes are produced and then we hang the plant up to flower.
