Coelogyne fimbriata

Flower

Etymology
Coelogyne From Greek koilos meaning hollow, and Greek gyne meaning female, referring to hollow stigmatic surface.
fimbriata From Latin fimbriatus meaning fringed.

  See also:  Coelogyne

This small sized Coelogyne grows as an an epiphyte in intermediate elevation forests covering a wide range, from India to China and down to South East Asia. Sometimes it grows as a lithophyte on limestone outcrops. In cultivation, it prefers cool situations and will not flower if grown in warmth. The rhizomes joining pseudobulbs is relatively long, resulting in widely spaced pseudobulbs. It is more appropriately grown in a basket or mounted on a raft.

The inflorescences each carry one flower, and appear on top of mature pseudobulbs. Flowering time is in the autumn.
