Introducing the extraordinary Coryanthes bruchmuelleri, also known as biflora, a magnificent orchid celebrated for its stunning and uniquely designed bucket-shaped flowers. Native to the lush montane forests of Venezuela, Colombia, Brazil, and Peru, this epiphytic wonder thrives in warm to cool climates at elevations ranging from 900 to 1000 meters.

Coryanthes bruchmuelleri boasts large, elongate, ovoid pseudobulbs that support two apical, plicate leaves, creating a striking appearance even when not in bloom. However, the real spectacle begins when it flowers in the summer. The basal, pendant inflorescence, which can reach up to 24 inches (60 cm) in length, carries a few large, extremely fragrant flowers. These blooms are renowned for their herbal scent and are among the largest in the Coryanthes genus.

Our offering features the pure flava variety, distinctively yellow without the usual red spotting, making it a rare and prized addition to any orchid collection. Each flower, lasting approximately 5 days, may bloom multiple times per season on mature plants, ensuring a prolonged display of its breathtaking beauty.

Cultivating Coryanthes bruchmuelleri requires replicating its natural habitat as an epiphyte in montane forests. Provide bright, indirect light and maintain humidity levels suitable for tropical plants. Regular watering is essential during the growing season, with reduced watering in winter to simulate its natural cycle. A well-draining orchid mix or bark medium supports healthy root development.
