    Default Coryanthes macrantha

    It has been a long long since my last posting which were Paphs. These are some of the photos which took for my Coryanthes macrantha. Simply awesome and bizzare on the flowers.

    I'm with Cattan , bizarre, but they almost look like art made out of glass , they are beautiful . Curious to see what the whole plant looks like but the flowers are cool .

    Yes, I did on the first day. It has antiseptic and tinge o spice fragrance on it. A pity that the flower does not last as long as my paph flowers (6 to 8 weeks).

    Hi Yew Sung,

    Yes, I did not post for quite a while. I hope everything is fine with you as well as your plants.
    I got the coryanthes because it reminds me of my nepenthes which I still have soft spot for them. I grew nepenthes before switching to paphs. Coryanthes flowers are more intricate and bizzare. A pity the bloom does not last as long as the paph flowers.

    Very wicked blooms, Joseph! How cool these must be in person. I know the blooms don't last as long as paph blooms, but the unique look of the flowers more than makes up for the shorter life of the blooms -IMO. Lovely!!

    cheers,
    BD
