Gongora first time Male
Default Gongora first time

I just received my first gongora. I would only say this around orchid people as it sounds like an affliction. Itís a Gongora fulva from ecuagenera. Really pleased with this plant they sent and for such a reasonable price. Photo below.

After getting a stanhopea a few months ago I decided to try this as well. Wasnít sure Iíd be successful with these growing indoors in New England but since my cattleyas and vanda do reliably bloom each year I think itís worth a try.

Anyone know if this appears to be blooming size? Also, is minimum temperature of 60 degrees F okay for these? Iíve been reading about warm and cool types. My sunroom goes no lower than 60 in winter.

Temperature should be fine. I bet it blooms on the next new growths if the plant is happy.

Good 4 U. I've had lousy luck with a galeata and a gratulabunda is thumbing its nose at me as we speak. But plants were never this big either. Galeata did bloom once tho. Think it's a temp issue. Send pic when you can!

Thanks DeaC. I looked up those two species, the galeata is especially beautiful. The lead on this one rotted in shipment and the last growth looks like it will yellow and decline. Sprayed roots with copper fungicide. Hopefully acclimates soon.

Thanks isurus! Do they usually start growing in winter months? I thought they might be needing a rest period about now.

I've had them grow just about any time of year, with most growths in spring/summer and a few stragglers in winter. The late season growths didn't usually get as big as the warm season ones.

Thanks again isurus. Since this shipped from South America itís probably flip flopped in itís seasons anyhow.
