    Flowers are about 2.5 inches across.
    I first grew this species many years ago, but have not had it for at least twenty years until I bought this plant, in flower last year. Has grown well for me, and perhaps has a few more flowers than when I bought it. But only one growth so far.
    Most Coelogynes will bulk up to multi-growth fairly easily, although the last example of this species I had never managed to flower all of the growths at the same time - so that although it might have had say 4 or 5 spikes in a year , they followed each other at varying intervals ; fine for decorating the greenhouse, but not much use for showing - in fact counter-productive, as judges tended to say, " a nice big plant like this with only one spike - not good."

    Does it grow warm ? Its what , here in UK we call intermediate. Flourishing in a winter night time minimum of 12 , and typical day time, summer temperatures in the high 20s.

    Well it probably won't suit the climate here then, it gets down to only 24-25 degrees at night and in the day it often reaches 30-32. I will just stick to panduratas!

    Those that i saw with many spikes are very mature plants with many shoots of leaves. I think once your is mature with many shoots, it will looks great.
