    Default Gongora 'Gargoyle'

    I love these things! Saw this at the MSU show but didn't write down the cross. Fortunately for me, the vender hadn't brought any to sell. LOL

    I like the display, the flowers look like birds in flight.

    Too bad the vendor did not bring any, that would be a fun plant to grow and bloom.

    Very unusual plant. Looks like it would do well in a terrerium (sp) because of the moss. They DO look like birds in flight, or hummers gathering around a feeder.

    Personally, they generally remind me of dragons in flight, but my vision is skewed that way. LOL

    Tami, unless one has a big terr, Gons wouldn't work well I'm afraid. The plants tend to be about 12 inches [30 cm] or more tall and the spikes, always pendant, are at least as long. They do seem to need that high humidity to flower well though.

    I lost my G chocoensis. Have to get another at some point.
