Default Coelogyne usitana

After almost two long years, I present Coelogyne usitana!

It arrived almost 2 years ago with a broken spike. As you can see from varying degrees of sunburn, I tried multiple light intensities. The time the new growth emerged to the bloom was painfully long. Grown semi-hydro.

Oh, yeah, that's another spike starting in front.

I don't know that I learned anything new. As I've said before many times, change a variable by trial and error. And a lot of patience!

I suppose I learned "low light" has a huge range!

I like the dark lip. I really, REALLY like the dark lip. Hope it stays like that.

She wore Red Velvet
Redder than velvet was the lip
Softer than satin was the light

That's a beautiful flower! Congratulations on your successful recovery (not yours...the plant).
