We are delighted to see Coelogyne swaniana coming back into flower as it is a species we saw flowering in the wild in Sarawak on our last expedition.
We found lots of large leaved warm growing Coelogyne species in the trees of Mulu especially on the canopy walkway. One of the species is Coelogyne swaniana and it grows in the shaded lower branches or on the trunk of trees.
Back at school, it is a species that grows well for us in Warm Asia in shade and watered well throughout the year. We grow plants in large baskets to allow for the pendulous flower spikes that are produced over a period of months from late Spring until Autumn.
