I posted Coelogyne pulverula in April but another plant has just flowered with a spike over 1m long (I was clearly wrong when I said ‘up to 100cm long in my April post) with 52 flowers on the spike – see metre rule in the first photo. What a magnificent species.
The species is native to Malaysia, Thailand and Borneo where it grows on the trunks and lower branches of large trees in evergreen forest from 300 to 1800m. We find that the species enjoys growing warm but well shaded and kept moist throughout the year. We find that leaves can become damaged by bright sun or by plants being allowed to become dry for long periods.
