Default Coelogyne cristata

I took it a year ago although I knew that I don't have the right conditions for it, but I like the Coelogyne cristata white flowers so much.
Cold rest is required for blooming, and I do not have right place for the rest.

In my case it seems that cold rest is not mandatory.
it is all the time together with all others orchids in my gh.

That's really pretty! I bought one a few months ago and it hasn't been doing much, I was concerned about the conditions but hopefully I'll be as successful as you were.

Are the tips of the leaves cut off? May I ask why?

thanks to all for the comments.

@escualida - my experiance with Coelognye cristata is not big - I have it only for a year.
tips of leaves have become dry brown and that's the reason for cutting them off. at the moment I am not sure is it normal or not.
