Coelogyne fimbriata

Coelogyne fimbriata - Flower photo by Richard LindbergCoelogyne fimbriata - Plant photo by Richard LindbergI was not particularly interested in getting this Coelogyne fimbriata last January, but choices were limited by the time I had a winning ticket at the SCOS opportunity table. I put it on a bench in an available spot where it has sat since.

Coelogyne fimbriata grows throughout Southeast Asia in limestone cliffs below 4500 feet. It is cool to hot growing, fragrant and blooms in the fall. Coelogyne (Coel) contains 100 species found in all of Asia east of India and Indonesia and Fiji. Conditions vary considerably.

This plant is in a bark/perlite mix in a 3-inch plastic basket. There are twelve pseudobulbs and stands six inches above the pot. Now that I have a flower picture and there are buds left to open, I will put it on EBay.
