Coelogyne lawrenceana

This Coelogyne lawrenceana was on the member sale table at a SFOS meeting in 2007. It was three pseudobulbs, the ones on the left of the picture, in fact. It has grown and bloomed pretty regularly once it had got established. I had thought about dividing it. I have finally done it.

It is fragrant, cool to warm growing and blooms some time from fall to spring. The genus Coelogyne (Coel) contains 100 species found in all of Asia east of India and Indonesia and Fiji. Conditions vary considerably.

The end result is five pots. There are two 3-pseudobulb lead divisions in 4-inch plastic pots. The original three pseudobulbs and one of the connecting backbulb divisions are in 3 1/4-inch plastic pots. The best backbulb divisions of three pseudobulbs is in a 4-inch plastic pot. I will keep one of the backbulb divisions and sell the rest later.

  2. I love the close-up pics of the flowers. What kind of camera do you use?

  3. Thank you, I work hard to get those individual pictures. But it is not an expensive camera. It is an Olympus C-720 Ultra Zoom, an older digital. Then I crop to get what I want.

    I use a tripod and shoot using a background cloth for most of the pictures.
