Coelogyne odoardoi – 365 days of orchids – day 1619

Even after 1619 days of posting a flowering orchid from our collection we find orchids that are new to 365 days. It is a treat to introduce you to this glorious Coelogyne species with deep copper coloured flowers.

Coelogyne odoardoi is another warm growing species native to the warm forests of Borneo (Sarawak and Sabah) that we explored during our expeditions to Sarawak in 2019. The species is found at elevations from 200 to 900m and the forests here have large evergreen trees providing warm semi shaded conditions for species like Coelogyne odoardoi on the broad trunks and lower branches.

To provide similar conditions in cultivation we grow the species in shade in our Warm Asia section (Min 17C) and provide water throughout the year as the habitat does not have a very marked dry season.

    What a fabulous colour. Don’t suppose this one’ll be in the shop any time soon!
