to as the black orchid because of the nearly black markings
on its lip, this is a very rewarding and beautiful coelogyne to raise.
Often one will read that these are relatively low light plantsand
while thats true for growing them, if you ever want to BLOOM them
(and isnt that why most of us grow orchids?) they seem to need brighter
light to encourage those blooms. The large flowers are nicely
fragrant. They open sequentially along an arching spray. They could be
grown hanging...we tend to just raise the pot so that the flowers dont
hit the bench below. These are truly special orchids!
