Default Coelia bella

It is very difficult to show the large number of flowers in a picture, because they exist all around the pot, and tend to be hidden by the leaves. This orchid is easy to grow (in my conditions!)

Hi friends, thanks for looking!

Hi Jenny, Coelia usualy blooms in April/May here (Fall in the Southern Hemisphere). I guess October/November would be the "correct" blooming time in Northern Hemisphere (seasonally adjusted!). Christmas time it's OK, only a little bit late!

Very nice. I like the campanulate form of the flowers, as well as the pink tips on the sepals.
