365 days of Orchids – Day 65 – Gongora gratulabunda
Hi, Ben here with my favourite of the plants that are currently flowering: the Gongora gratulabunda
We grow it in the Warm Asia section along with our other Gongoras and in the wild it grows in warm mountain forests in Colombia at around 850 to 1600 meters. Each spike has around 12 flowers which bloom in the winter and are particularly colourful with lots of spots.
Like all our Gongoras we grow the plant in a basket so that its pendulous flowers can hand down from the plant.
