Coelogyne mossiae – 365 days of orchids – day 1886

Another orchid from our show display today.

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. Apparently this species is commonly miss labeled in cultivation but we are fairly confident of ours as it came from a donation from a Scottish botanic garden collection.

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.
