    Wink Coelogyne pandurata in bloom

    Coelogyne pandurata is quite common in our lowland forests and has quite large flowers 3 inches or so. The flowers open simultaneously and lasts for less than a week, In IOSPE it says that the flowers smell like honey but to me they stink of unwashed sweat shirts. Apart from the attractive green colour the the lip and the throat have very nice patterning. It is very free flowering with terminal spikes from every new pseudobulb.

    Very attractive and vibrant colours Yew Sung. I am waiting for mine to show some signs of blooms - I got the plant as a flowering size specimen and have had it for a year. How long did it take you to get it to flower?

    I can't really remember as I've had this for a long time. I first got it with flowers and in the first year it bloomed twice. This is the third time it has bloomed this year.

    Not a big fan of green flowers, but have always loved those of pandurata. I think the patterning of the lip is what does it for me. Gotta love how a fragrance can strike different people so differently.

    Hi Suresh one of the main reasons for these not flowering is light they require heavy air movement and very bright light.
