365 days of orchids – day 504 – Gongora gratulibunda

We have several planta of Gongora Gratulibunda in flower or in bud this week. This species is great value with long spikes of large flowers produced from medium sized plants.

This clobe is orange/yellow with fine red spots but we also have a pure yellow clone (below) and another with large red spots.

We grow the species 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. Like all our Gongoras we grow the plant in a basket so that its pendulous flowers can hand down from the plant.
