Coelogyne fimbriata

All of them have buds following so I can expect flowers for a month or so. Not showy, but a very nice flower. I cut off a couple of pieces last year to help shape it and it is looking pretty nice.

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 fifteen pseudobulbs and stands six inches above the pot. I put the whole basket inside a clay pot.
