Coryanthes macantha

  • Sale
  • $ 28


The genus Coryanthus is know as the Dripping Bucket orchis due to its bizarre method of attracting pollinators.  Glands secret a liquid into a bucket that "intoxicates" the visiting bees and wasps and they pick up the pollen on the far side of the "out door".  Then when repeating this process at this flower or another, deposits the pollen on the inside of the exit and picks up any left on the outside for the next flower.  Very rare and special.  Limited, and Colchicine treated for 28 days. 2 inch pots about 2 years from blooming,  but very robust (for me).
