    This is an unnamed Coelogyne species that I purchased at the POE (San Francisco) in 2019. Last year it put on two new growths and both of them started blooming in February. I have had three spikes with the larger growth having two and they were taller than the inflorescence from the smaller growth. Interestingly, my largest pseudobulb was less than half the size of the pre-import pseudobulb, so perhaps even taller spikes? I think this could be a very showy species if it does develop into a specimen with multiple upright spikes.

    It looks pretty big. Is it?

    I think I may have gotten one of these as well; one can never have too many Coelogyne. I'm also curious about the size of the plant... From memory, I think mine is fairly small. I'll have to go look for it.

    Here is a photo to show plant size and also a bloom closeup...fairly tall, but with pseudobulbs tightly together, makes it seem somewhat refined.
