    Default coelogyne lawrenceana rolfe

    Hi,
    I recently acquired a bare root coelogyne lawrenceana rolfe.
    Can anyone who is growing one share your culture tips for potting, light, fertilizer, temperature?



    Thanks.

    Hi Joan,

    I have a Coel. lawrenceana, and it's not too fussy. It gets bright indirect light. I have mine potted in clay and sphagnum moss, and try to keep it evenly moist, only slightly drying out between waterings. I fertilize every few weeks at 1/4 - 1/2 strength, but I also have some Osmocote time release fert in the pot. Pretty much standard fert treatment.

    It's pretty tolerant of temp - shoot for intermediate temps, but it won't fuss much if it gets a bit warm or cool.
