    Wonderful! Do you ever hear people call this the "Black Orchid"? I have heard it called that before, but don't get it. Anyway, it is wonderful!!

    Yes I heard it but not that sure about it. Another variations the flowers very small but center of the lip is purely black exactly like the photos above.

    It is called the black orchid because the color accent on the lip and throat is as close to "true black" as you can get. Although the rest of the flower is pale green.

    Finally, someone with a coelogyne! Okay, what temps and humidity do you raise yours in??? I traded and ended up with a Shultesii Longpipes. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Can it handle my 90+ humid front porch? Does it like a shaded porch or a sunny tree branch more?? I would love to save it if possible.... Oh yeah....how often do I mist? Water??
    Thank you

    O.K Connie. Basically they like temperature around 28 to 34 degree Celsius during day time and 22 to 24 degree Celsius night time. Humidity in our country always between 60 to 80% ( hygrometer) even high during raining season.This plant is purely epiphytic occ. lithophytic in nature they are dangling or attached strongly on tree barks higher up on the tree to get the sun light. Again with your on the porch I think fair enough give more sunlight and I belief it would be very happy. Talking about mist very hard for me to say because your altitude and longitude generally speaking they don't like too wet /soggy allow the root system dry intermittently.
    Another alternative get a piece of tree barks and sph. moss covered on the root system superficially might be helped your plant. Just have a looked the photos below how I used to save the orchids. You can try good lucks.
