Coelogyne stricta – 365 days of orchids – day 1513

Spring wouldn’t be spring without today’s giant coelogyne species from the Himalayas.

The species is native to the Himalayas and we have seen some wonderful specimen plants flowering in the forests of Sikkim at around 2000m altitude in cool moist monsoon forest. One plant in particular had completely enveloped the trunk of a large tree – a real site.

The photo shows a close view of flowers on a plant near Tinkitam in Sikkim.
