Coelogyne odoardii

Postby Saila » Fri Sep 22, 2006 11:15 pm

Got this baby by post today, any ideas what to do with it? It is very tiny, should it be potted or mounted on bark and moss? Should I keep it constantly moist or let dry a bit between watering? What about light conditions and humidity? Temperature? Acquired a floral light today - our dark winters, you remember :evil: - it just needs to be installed. Has anyone got a picture of C. odoardii?

found this

should flower quickly because this Coelogyne seems crawling (like Coelogyne fimbriata), of fast growth and should be very dwarf.

Thanks again Tom! :D
That is my Coelogyne odoardi indeed! :o it is flowering now, though it is very small. :D :D I bought it from the Bothanical Gardens of Turku University when Finnish Orchid Society made their traditional excursion there. It seems that I have succeeded in laying my hands on all kinds of weirdoes... :roll: It may be due to the fact that our guide Mr. Arno Kasvi (his name means 'Plant' in English! :lol: ), Head of the Bothanical Gardens, has been collecting himself material all over the world for reproduction in GH and garden. :mrgreen:

Al, you will be really lucky. Saila has now had a great camera for several weeks now but I think she's spending all her time buying orchids and forgets to take the camera out of it's box :roll:
:lol: :lol: :lol:

Don't worry Saila, I understand perfectly. I have a new camera that my mum bought me for Christmas last year - I didn't even take it out of its box for 3 months. I went through the manual and practiced with it, but whenever I get it out to use it I can't remember what's what. It's great for scenic shots on auto, but when it comes to taking close-ups with the macro I go back to my trusty old swivel-bodied Nikon every time!

Not just because I can't remember what's what. The Nikon focuses much closer - 2 cms - which makes a big difference if you're taking a pic of something tiny like Schoenorchis flowers. (Excuses, excuses!) :lol:
