I do like pendulous spikes and that is a cracker (or two?)

(Reminds me of my old massangeana I had many moons ago :( )

Two there Steve and two more on the way, with any luck i might get all 4 open at the same time.

They are a bit similar to massangeana (tomentosa), spikes usually a bit longer on this one, and flowers a liitle different. Mines not flowered for a while.

I do try to keep this one wet/moist and its in relatively fine bark. Pretty much the same for rochuseenii as well. Its quite a dilemma figuring out some of these coelogynes. Never thought i would be able to grow rochuseenii but it grows like a weed!

None of these big coelogynes grew well for me until i moved them into a seperate section of the greenhouse that was designed for highland Nepenthes. Really hard to say what the difference is though, its a bit shadier, probably more humid, temperatures roughly similar to the rest of the greenhouse. Min ~12-15C in winter. I thought it would be two cold but it doesnt seem to matter.

We have two rochuseeni clones, one is a very large indonesian clone, the other a more typical malaysian clone. They spread relatively quick, it wont be long before we have to split off a few bulbs. If you want we could let you know when we do, same with the spathoglottis, probably have spare bulbs spring next year.

Ones i really struggle with are things like speciosa, xyrekes etc and my marmorata looks a bit sick. Pandurata we had to put in a terrarium in the house were its now recovering!

I have got a few burn Mark's on my larger plants this due to being move higher.

I have found pretty much all coelogynes donwell for me.

In have never grown xyrekes before I do love it.

I find speciosa grows like a weed for me never stops growing in all honestly. I have found my velutina is grow exceptionally well with about 12 growths but no flowers for two years.

I have a couple of hybrids of pandurata they are starting to do well for me .

I find that no matter what I alway get brown leaf tips on them apart the thicker leaf ons.

I would never say never to new plants.

I am struggling with my new schrilliana that's on bark and has a constant wick of water to it had no feed and still got brown tips.
