    I bought this as a Coelogyne I'd never heard of. Fortunately I like erias, so I am happy. The flowers are about 0.75", no fragrance. I'm growing it intermediate, mounted, daily water.

    May I suggest a clonal name of "the tickler"?

    Super Nice, Marni. It is one of my favorite Eria species and I especially like the Bulbo-like growths.
    This species is variable and I think mine has different color. How long do your flowers last? My flowers last for two weeks, maybe a little bit longer.

    I think the name should be 'Mobile'. The stupid thing would not stop moving. The lip was slightly jiggling and I finally had to take the flower off the plant and hold it in a clip to get a shot in focus.

    Tom: as mentioned above, this flower didn't last past the first half of the photography session, so I'm not how long. It has another bud about ready to open, I'll see if my attention span is long enough to check it out.

    Thank you. Not that is important. I am just curious.
