Coelogyne miniata

Coelogyne miniata - Flower photo by Richard LindbergCoelogyne miniata grows in Java, Bali, Lesser Sunda Islands and Sumatra in mountain forests above 3000 feet, sometimes as a lithophyte. It is cool to warm growing and blooms in winter.

Now that there is new growth I have mounted it. I don't mount backbulb pieces because I am not able to predict what side the new growth will come from. For a mount, having the new growth pointed toward the bark is important. All the new roots will be close enough to the bark to attach.
