Gongora truncata – 365 days of orchids – day 794

We have a lovely array of Gongora species coming into flower this week and one of the larger flowered is this sweetly scented species from Mexico, Guatemala and Belize from 185-850m altitude. We have been to this habitat and found it seasonally dry but wet and warm in the summer.

We grow all our Gongoras in baskets so that they show off the wonderful pendulous flower spikes. The challenge for plants in baskets is to keep plants damp enough and we water our Gongoras heavily.
