Coelogyne usitanaThe Coelogyne usitana has just started blooming again. At the beginning of the year it had two spikes blooming and then they died off.

The genus Coelogyne (Coel) contains 100 species found in all of Asia east of India and Indonesia and Fiji. Conditions vary considerably.Coelogyne usitana grows only on Mindanao. It is warm to hot growing. It will set a spike in spring or summer in new growth.
