Coelogyne mooreana 'Brockhurst' FCC/RHS HCC/AOS

Coelogyne mooreana 'Brockhurst' FCC/RHS HCC/AOS - Flower photo by Richard LindbergCoelogyne mooreana grows in Vietnam in high mountain cloud forests. It is fragrant and blooms in spring and early summer on immature growth. The genus Coelogyne (Coel) contains 100 species found in all of Asia east of India and Indonesia and Fiji. Conditions vary considerably.

This is the only one of this species in the Napa greenhouse. The others are in Sonoma and were hurt by the cooling failure in the summer. Some died and the others are just starting to recover. I am going to divide and re-pot this since it is overflowing the 3 1/2-inch pot and has two leads.
