Coelogyne mooreana 'Brockhurst' FCC/RHS HCC/AOS

Coelogyne mooreana 'Brockhurst' FCC/RHS HCC/AOS - Flower photo by Richard LindbergThe phrase "grows like a weed" is an apt description for Coelogyne mooreana. I bought a specimen plant several years ago to divide. The original divisions took off and I divide them every other year. If I didn't sell some of them I would be overrun.

This plant is ready to divide. There are four new growths and the pot is full. I will divide it and let you know how it went. And I will make sure I inspect all of the Coelogyne mooreana plants since they are likely to have new growth started also. Some will need repotting and some can wait another year.
