Need help about how to repot my Coelogyne Male
Default Need help about how to repot my Coelogyne

Hello, my friends

If my Coelogyne was getting big, I'm sure now it will become a monster. It has two new growths when, usually, there was only one in late autumn (this year's is growing early).

I know they prefer to be in a basket but that option is out of the equation because I don't have conditions to hang baskets at home.
It is growing laterally and I can't simply use a bigger pot because the medium in the center wouldn't dry as fast as desireable.
So, the option is a wide and flat pot, like the one in the photo. This one is made of clay...in summer it would dry fast (it would need daily waterings, for sure) but I prefer to water more than be seatted watching the medium get dry.

What do you think? Any other options will be welcome!

Some photos...







A photo of the flowers...maybe it convince you to get one...ha, it's fragrant!

Yes. You might also consider a rectangular window box.

I tought about it... it seems a far better solution than a circular pot. But I need to keep it manageable while it's getting bigger...remember, the spikes are pendent.
Maybe a smaller one, filled with rocks at the bottom...light rocks such as pumice...is there anything against its use?

I was just thinking, since the plant tends to grow in a linear fashion... something that shallow with large bark, pumice or scoria should work.

At Chinese markets here they sell low, wide, round plastic washing basins of different sizes. Is there anything like that near you?

Yes, and they sell everything...literally!

I already bought a rectangular window box. It'ss maybe too large and deep...I will divide it with some large river stones (readily available, just need to pick them up) and lots of leka at the bottom.

Repot done... at the bottom, a layer of LECA for drainage, followed by a more or less thick layer of sphagnum followed by a mix of leca+bark+perlite and coco chips.
