    Default Coryhopeas-flowering habits?

    Ok, so i got this great, healthy thriving Coryhopea (Coryanthes macrantha x Stanhopea oculata), but problem is, i dont know what its flowering habit is like, and i cant find any info anywhere. Will the spike come through the medium like a Stanhopea? Or cascade over the side like a Coryanthes?

    And when do Coryhopea typically flower? What season?
    And what temperatures do they like?

    Last time i asked this question i had pictures of the plant, and everyone was too busy admiring the nice healthy plant lol

    Thanks in advance!

    Probably in between the two parents. I think spikes may emerge downwards, so open slatted basket/wire basket is still your best bet. I do not think intergeneric hybrids have a specific flowering season. Probably both of the parent plants' seasons combined together...

    Thanks Paphioboy, the grower i bought it off had it in a standard closed bottom pot, and he is the one who made this cross. (i mean the particular flask this plant came out of, not the entire idea of C. macrantha x S. oculata lol) I do have some baskets actually, so now i need to find some moss!

    Both are summer bloomers so that shouldn't be a problem. Of more concern would be what temps to aim for. The Stan is a cool to intermediate while the Cory is intermediate to warm. With that in mind, I'd expect intermediate temps to be what you'll wish to aim for.

    As an alternative to moss -- which can be a pain to wedge in between the slats of the basket, one of those coco fiber basket liners might work. Just put some large slits in the liner on the bottom. I would think that if the plant does try to bloom down through the basket's bottom, that the slits would allow them to do so more easily.
