Coryanthes is an interesting genus of "Bucket" flowered orchids. The exact pollination mechanism of these plants is very unique. The plant produces an actual bucket filled with fragrant fluid which attracts pollinators. These pollinators fly into the buckets but cannot escape, except for one pathway, which is right underneath the pollinea. As the bug exits the flower, the pollen is deposited onto the creatures back and because it is a bug and bugs are not smart, it goes and does it on another flower, thus pollinating it. 

This is a species we've never seen before and are excited to offer. We recommend growing in the 4" pot with moss or fine bark, and keeping it moist. Once the plant is growing to the edge of the 4" pot, repot it into a large 6" basket and the plant will then put out its flowers through the bottom of the pot. Preventing the flowering while the plant is younger will bring more vigor into the plant and it will flower much better later on.
