    Question Coelogyne rochussenii, Why won't it bloom?

    I have had this plant for a couple of years, and it grows quite well, nice big, fat pseudobulbs, but never blooms. Just keeps growing and growing. Any advice for me? Live in South Florida. Summers are Rainy Season here, warm/hot and wet..Temps around 85-90, and rain every few days. Winters are mild, seldom reaching the low 40's, and much drier than summer. Winter is Dry Season, and it rains maybe once a month, and then, only light rains. I have been growing it in bright shade, but recently moved it to a much brighter spot. Dappled sunlight, next to Oncidium sphacelatum...

    Hmmm, for that size it should have already a crazy root system, i suspect the humidity isn't high enough. Your light/climate conditions should be ok.
    Try potting it up, or in a basket, with a well draining medium.
    I havent flowered those yet, but roots are growing extremely fast during the cooler rainy days.

    I agree with Ron re the temp and humidity. The blooming season is usually around October - Nov. Dappled sunlight would suit it better than shade. Mine is grown under 'cattelya conditions'. Good luck for this year. Oct/Nov is normally our months of heaviest rainfall.
