    Cool Coelogyne fimbriata

    I have watched this sheath for a month or two. I was bringing plants into the greenhouse yesterday and noticed a nice fat bud finally peeking out...and today as I was watering I found this amazing flower. Gotta say I am in love with the lip...and what a big flower for such a small plant! One of my new types and if it keeps this up...another new favorite. lol

    Wow, Connie! That IS a keeper. (I also love the roots in the background of the last picture.)
