List of the best spicy orchids (part 2)

6. Katasetum
Fans of pastry art can easily recognize the smell of Catasetum (Catasetum) – rare orchids whose flowers smell like freshly baked rye bread and malt muffin. These are sympodial orchids with oval pseudobulbs very densely pressed to each other, resembling cigars with a pointed end to many (they can grow up to 20 cm in length).

Catasetum
Even young pseudobulbs are leafy even at rest, from the second year lanceolate leathery leaves with longitudinal veins fall off. This deciduous orchid produces simultaneously large male, up to 12 cm in diameter, and small female flowers.

Only the first ones can boast of high decorativeness – upside down, with a funnel-shaped lip, oval sepals and petals. Unique dark red, chocolate colors, contrasting with the yellow-green lip, only emphasize how unusual this orchid is.
7. Wanda
The spices are associated with aromas of most types of vandas (Vanda), however, they vary greatly in intensity and sometimes take on shades of grapes. The brightest orchid with rounded petals has become famous for its dazzling “acrylic” shades of purple, pink, purple, purple, and its complex character.

Wands are monopodial orchids that do not form pseudobulbs. Medium stems with densely sessile, belt-shaped and brightly colored leaves and greenish airy roots create very bizarre silhouettes.

Small-flowered or multi-flowered vandas always look bright. From peduncles of various shapes, developing from the axils of the leaves, from 2 to 15 flowers bloom, which gradually grow and acquire characteristic colors (only a few days after blooming). Vandas flowers can exceed 15 cm in diameter, the curvature of the lines is their main feature.
