    Default Coelogyne Unchained Melody

    I was given this as a large, poor condition plant. I broke it into 4 pieces 2 years ago. This year, 3 plants in spike. 2 plants with 2 spikes, 1 with one, one no show.

    Oh, so pretty! I had a Coelogne when I was in college, I had it for years, but never got it to bloom.

    The spike more open today. Always too keen to photo too early.
    Good light I believe is key to flowering.

    Yup, it is very hard not to take pics and post them as soon as a flower is open enough to see it. I have a Coelogyne fimbriata that I think is in spike too. They seem to grow quite slowly. Hopefully they will mature and open soon.

    Yours is very pretty (and I am not a big fan of white flowers per se).
