    I like it! how do you grow it and how long do the blooms last?
    I saw some coelogynes at the botanic garden and had to get one. yours is beautiful.
    was it small when you first got it? do you have a photo of the whole plant?
    wonder if it is one of those that climb and sprawl.

    Thankyou all for the nice comments. Stefano, it only had 2 bulbs when it came here. Planted in claypot with charcoal+bricks at the bottom and the bulb surrounded by treefern. Now, there are additional 2/3 new bulbs.

    Smile Coelogyne swaniana

    This plant has flowered few times since its arrival here. This time around, it produces 2 spikes. Took these pictures yesterday after work, so maybe the dorsal bend downwards.
