Hi Philippa,

Absolutely enchanting! I have great success with the cool-growers namely cristata, mooreana, nitida , flaccida and fimbriata. Some Coelogynes have the reputation of sulking after repotting particularly cristata. In my experience it was not the case. I repot about every 3 years into medium coir husk and they bounce back no problem, I would love t have the conditions for the warm-grower tomentosa which is so majestic. I have tried it twice but the growth starts to deteriorate after about a year.
