Waking up this morning I was treated to this wonderful sight in my bathroom. This Coelogyne cristata has spent the last four years living on this small East facing window and is clearly a very happy plant. I can now look forward to over a month of these wonderful white flowers. When out of flower the species has attractive leaves and shiny green pseudobulbs – It makes me wonder if Coelogyne cristata is the best house plant for a cool windowsill?
To grow the plant well I water well throughout the year – but I am careful not to wet the flowers – with weak feed throughout the spring and summer. I repot every two years.
We have young plants available at the shop that should flower in 12 months.
