    Excellant photos, Zain! Corys will never likely win a "beauty contest" but they are such incredibly fascinating flowers!

    They are fantastic things these bucket orchids ;I had one - have just junked it ; it did flower twice, and when the bud was almost ready to open it looked like a clenched fist ! But my plant never looked as good as this - only one or two bulbs with leaves,lots of back-bulbs when it arrived, and eventually no leaves .
    You have a lovely plant here Zain , it looks very healthy. Maybe I'll try again .

    It almost looks like wet butterfly wings when the butterfly/moth first emerges from their cocoon. Fascinating Zain, as always.
