    An easy to grow medium to small Coelogyne. Not much of a fragrance, but striking flowers.

    Beautiful. Is this one of the warmer growing coelogynes?

    I grow mine in a cool greenhouse, but i think this is an adaptable species as it grows over a wide elevation range.

    Lost mine some time ago, but it had been quite a specimen...my favorite part of the flower's habit was the sweet droplets of nectar that formed on the colored pattern of the lip. You've captured it beautifully in some of your photos. If you ever divide it, let me know!...
