The largest of the genus, related to Coelogyne. I've found this species to be a very easy grower. Nice scent of vanilla, but with a bit of soapiness. Blooms are presented well, in a slightly twisting pendulous raceme. But you really have to get in there before the blooms start looking like orchid flowers! From the side, the individual blooms, hidden under their cowl-like floral bracts, look like hermit crabs. Each flower has a natural spread of about 1.3cm, and spikes I counted varied from about 82 to 112 blooms each. With 24 spikes this year, by the time they're all bloomed out, this plant will have produced approximately 2300 blooms in this year's blooming. Currently in a 12" pot.
