phallove is on a distinguished road
coelogyne lawenceiana

Been a long time posting,
I bought a coel lawrenciana this spring,and have it growing under lights,
Was wondering if it would do better outside, on a northeastern exposure step in my back yard. It would be fairly cool at night (aprox 10 to 15 % C.

Thanks for any advice

This very large flowered Coelogyne is from Vietnam on the western side of Mt Lang-Bian at around 2500m. This height can be much cooler than one would expect from a tropical country. Nevertheless, it still requires high humidity and plenty of moisture. It needs absolute protection from frosts.

It was named in memory of Sir James Lawrence (1831 - 1913) who was President of the RHS for a long period.

The flower spikes, carrying only one to three sequentially opening flowers, take a long time to develop. Additionally, the spikes don't open at the same time but different spikes flower over several weeks. This trait, together with the large, long lasting blooms, result in a beautiful display over many weeks. Because there is not a 'mass' display this orchid is for those who like to linger over the beauty of individual flowers.

Negatives: This orchid needs a fair bit of frost-free space.

Hope this helps.
Bolero and phallove like this.
On the box it said Windows XP or better so I bought a Mac.
