    Default Coelogyne mooreana 'Brockhurst' FCC/RHS

    Coelogyne, pronounced see-LODGE-eh-nee, is a genus that spans most of Asia, from India to China, and Indonesia to the Fiji Islands. Because its habitats vary so greatly, the conditions for each species have to be considered above the genus as a whole.

    This species, mooreana, is indigenous to the high cloud forests of Vietnam.

    This is the first of three spikes to bloom, and it's been blooming for several weeks. The flowers have a light gardenia fragrance. Interestingly, the six flowers on this spike barely cleared each other before they opened. They all smushed up against one other. This is a first blooming for the plant, so I'm curious how the other two spikes will bloom out.

    Their growth slowed considerably when the first spike flowered, which demonstrates how supporting active blooms really taps into the energy reserves of a plant. Supporting a seed pod does it many times over!

    Thanks guys, and your Princelyness!

    Jason, Coelogyne cristata is very similar to mooreana, and although it comes from the Himilayas and Java, as opposed to Vietnam, it's natural habitat is pretty much the same.

    If you can't find cristata and would like a source for mooreana, PM me.

    Julie it is beautiful and I think I like it better than cristata. From the date on your post, it is a fall bloomer.
