Coelogyne flaccida in bloom
My Coelogyne cristata blooms (see previous post) are starting to wilt, unfortunately, but it was great to finally see this plant bloom! It looked fantastic, if I do say so myself :)
I am very fond of my Coelogyne flaccida which is currently in bloom. This plant is doing very well too, and was one that I purchased as part of a joint orchid import from Brazil. The flowers definitely have an unusual smell, but after the first couple of days the smell seemed, at least to me, to morph into a sweeter smell, almost like beeswax. I will be sad when the flowers are finished on this one for sure!
