    Default Coelogyne cristata

    This plant has lived with me for the last year and a half, this is the first time I have seen it bloom. I must say, this is the easiest species to get along with that I have ever grown. Quite lovely really. Thanks for having a look!

    This one was near the top of my must have list and I forget how many times I passed it up for something else. Thanks to you, it will go to the very top of my list.

    If it blooms this well and beautifully, if its easy to grow and bloom, it is a wonderful plant! I go along with Bruce. Those pseudo bulbs are round like mini apples and really quite appealing. AL
