    It is an intermediate temperature orchid - meaning that it needs a winter night minimum temperature of say 15 C. Comes from humid valleys in the Himalayan lowlands , I guess <1000 m altitude. Most Coelogynes, and I do not think this is an exception, like to be grown in very well drained compost- usually I have seen them ( not this species, but others) as epiphytes or ltho/terrestrials, meaning on well sloped rock faces with a fair amount of leaf litter etc, and be on the dry side when their bulbs are completed, until new growth starts - but quite wet after flowering and whilst the growth develops.
    This is a species not often seen in cultivation, but all the Cowlogynes are worth growing.
    Good luck with it.
    Btw you will get better advice here if you provide a few details of where you live - not your street address (!) but like, France, Provence, or whatever.

    I do live in the Netherlands, but i do not grow iT outside. I does stay inside in winter, and in summer iT can go outside. Does iT need a winter rest?

    Rest in orchids is not dictated by what the calendar says, but what the plant says. When the growth is completed, then it wants to rest until the. Next growth starts.
