    Default Bollea coelestis

    This has been a great plant -- regular bloomer. Big too -- in an 8" pot. Flowers are very substantial and long lasting. Lightly fragrant. Thanks everyone for looking!

    Well done, Mike! I don't see members of this genus at shows very often though I don't know why not.

    Oh WOW!!!

    I've never heard of a Bollea before... that is one GORGEOUS plant!!! Stunning blooms! And I love how the leaves sort of look like a large "fan." I'd clicked the picture initially thinking I would be looking at some type of Vanda, but wow! It looks like I have a new type of orchid to add to my wish list... hehee...

    That is so beautiful! I have one of those but the blooms are so short and they're often sitting just of top of the media. I thought that's how they're supposed to be. lol. Mind sharing your culture on this beauty?

    This has got to be the best looking plant and flowers I've seen and I've seen more than afew photos of this orchid. Very Impressive Display. Tell me Mike are you right in cool, foggy San Francisco? I know this is a very intermidiate grower. Do you keep it outside part of or all of the year? AL
