Coelogyne cristata new growth or flower spikes(turning brown)
Default Coelogyne cristata new growth or flower spikes(turning brown)

Hello my name is Stephanie and I live in Connecticut. I bought this cristata a few months ago at a orchid show ind it is putting out new “things”. I cannot tell if they are new leaves or flower spikes and they are turning brown. I have checked the roots and they are not mushy. There are 4 pseudobulbs that do not have leaves, what should I do with them?. I am fairly new to the orchid field but love it. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. TIA

How are you growing the plant (what conditions are you providing; temperature, water, growing medium, etc.)?

On the Coelgynes that I have (C. cristata and C. 'Unchained Melody') I sometimes see brown bracts, etc., including on growths that grow normally, and others that fail.

Don't worry too much if one or two growths fail as you are adjusting to caring for a plant and vice-versa. Coelogynes, IME, tend to produce many growths each year.

It is growing in sphagnum moss, which is what it came in. The temperature is high 60s and I water it once a week to every two weeks depending on how dry it is. It is also under grow lights.

Hello Stephanie. I am new here.

I’ve been looking all over the web for someone having the same problem as I am with the Coelogyne cristata. My flower spike has also turned brown, looks exactly like your pictures.
What happened with it? Did the flowers fail or did any emerge?

Thank you.

They ended up being new leaves. I will take pictures of them when I get home and post them.

Thanks.

Looks like mine will be the same. Did you ever figure out what caused the tips to turn brown?
