    Default Rhyncostylis coelestis in bloom

    Here are a few pics of my R. coelestis in bloom. These are the second blooms on this plant. Last year it bloomed in August, I was told that it was the first bloom when I got it. The flowers have a fresh fragrance like the ones of wet wipes.

    Here is the entire plant with blooms

    I'd take a million pics too...that's just too pretty. I love the delicate white daubed with purple.

    Very pretty. What is the potting media that you have used? Is it just coconut husk?
