Leaves look dry... but they also look a bit toasted (maybe got a blast of sun) or have spider mites (which can also dessicate leaves by sucking the life out of them) . Remember, too, that hydration needs roots. So if the roots aren't in good condition, more water might be contributing to, not solving the problem. A few possibilities for you to check in to, the solution depends on the actual cause.

Thanks for your insights.

It's times like these that I hate my poor memory. I can't remember now if the leaves were like this when I bought it because that could've helped me rule out some of those possibilities. I might have to start taking pictures of every plant I get now but it's a hassle.

Once you figure out what might be the issue, don't plan on old leaves plumping up... but hopefully, new growth will be fine. Coelogynes do tend to shed old leaves, so if they drop but you're getting new growth, not a cause for worry.

These are the cultural notes I use:"Origin/Habitat
This species is native to southwestern India at elevations between 7,000 and 8,000 feet (2,130-2,440 meters) in the Nilgiri and Pulney Hills. In its habitat, Magnolia and Rhododendron are common. Fog and mist occur frequently almost year round, and moss covers everything. Coelogyne mossiae grows both on moss-covered trees and on slimy, moss-covered rocks. The likely temperature extremes are 85F (30C) and 34F (1C).

Cultural Recommendations: Light
This species does well under cattleya light conditions or about 2,000-3,000 foot-candles. Light in the habitat is brightest during he winter dry season when skies are clear for more than half the days each month. Strong air movement is recommended at all times.

Temperature
The warmest days of the year occur during the clear weather in late winter and early spring. In this season, days average 75-78F (24-26C) and nights average 51-55F (11-13C), with a diurnal range of 20-25F (12-14C). During the summer months, after the start of the rainy season, days average 68-70F (20-21C), and nights average 52-53F (11-12C), with a diurnal range of 16-17F (9C). During the winter rest period, days average 65-72F (18-22C), and nights average 46-48F (8-9C), with a diurnal range of 18-24F (10-13C). For cultivated plants a night temperatures in winter of 50-55F (10-13C) is adequate.

Miscellaneous Notes
This species flowers in cultivation during the winter and early spring months. "

Mine wrinkled when I didn't water regularly. Might your tree Fern require a different watering schedule?

I don't think it's possible to overwater Coelogynes so long as there is air at the roots. Tree fern has lots of air spaces and retains very little water. Try watering every day and see what happens.
