More about the blooming Coelogyne

Coelogyne flaccida grows grows from northern India through south China in mountain forests in the 3000 to 6000 foot range. It is cold to cool growing and is fragrant.

I couldn't wait so I went through the 120 species of Coelogyne listed on OrchidSpecies.com one at a time. They have quite a good flower picture for most of the species and I had their picture and my picture on side-by-side tabs in my Firefox browser.

Even though the tag is wrong I am pretty confident that the plant is a species. The person selling it has primarily species plants. The only thing left to do is make the new tags and locate the plants in the jungle I call a greenhouse.
