Those are stunning, Frederico. Since you've been growing your plant for more than a decade, would you mind providing some cultural information about this species, please? I just ordered one and before it arrives I'd like to get an idea of what it needs (or prefers) in regards to water, light, humidity, etc. And are the flowers fragrant? Thank you!

Steve

Hi Steve!

For growing Coelia, I use the same medium and conditions I use for Bifr harrisoniae; some people states that Coelia is terrestrial, but it groes very well as epiphytic!
