365 days of orchids – day 8 – Coelogyne multiflora
Hi, I’m Ben. Today’s orchid is the Coelogyne multiflora from the island of Sulawesi just east of Borneo.
We counted the flowers and came to 365 which is a real coincidence and certainly goes with the name ‘Multiflora’. We grow the plant in Warm Asia with a minimum of 17C which will be similar to the natural habitat in lower montain forests at around 1200m altitude. It is reported as growing on fallen tree trunks. we grow it in a large pot and keep it damp all year.
GOSTARIA DE COMPRAR MUDA DESSA PLANTA.
Thanks Maria – For those who a not confident in Portuguese – “Would love to buy a division of that plant”
As most of you will know we grow our orchids from seed and we have a number of great Coelogyne species growing well in-vitro. Some will be available at our show 3-4th November.
