Early in the year, sometimes already in January, there are always orchids that surprise us: a new shoot develops and the flower stem comes along fairly quickly as well. Well-known are the dendrochilums that want to start flowering then. Less well-known is Chelonistele, a genus that is close to Dendrochilum and Coelogyne.
