Coelogyne mossiae – 365 days of orchids – day 1615

Happy bank holiday Monday. Today we have a species that is new to 365 days of orchids. Coelogyne mossiae is a species from Southern India where it is found as an epiphyte or lithophyte in subtropical forests from 2300-2700m so this is a cool growing orchid.

We find that Coelogyne mossiae is a tough orchid with thick leathery leaves and round, stout pseudobulbs. The flowers are very fragrant, long lasting and bourn on short spikes.
