Constantia cipoensis

Constantia cipoensis

I chose this orchid not because of the flower (doesn’t have one for the moment) but for the leaves and bulbs.

Constatia is another genus with only 6 species that have, like the orchid on the picture, a packed spheroid pseudobulbs with two leaves. This species seems difficult to culture: airy, cool, humid, dappled shady conditions that allow it to dry out just a bit between waterings…..will not be easy! Need also very bright light….
