Description

Coelogyne cristata, an exquisite orchid species from the cool heights of the Himalayas, combines beauty and robustness in a plant ideally suited for cultivation in cool greenhouses and specialised terrariums. This species is characterised by oval to elongated pseudobulbs that efficiently store water and nutrients, supporting the plant through drier periods. The sturdy, lanceolate leaves that grow from each pseudobulb provide a deep green, elegant texture throughout the year.

The floral splendour of Coelogyne cristata is particularly noteworthy. The plant develops an up to 30 cm long, arching inflorescence carrying numerous large, fragrant, and especially striking white flowers. These flowers, with their fringed edges and characteristic yellow or orange markings in the centre, add a touch of exoticism to any collection and are a true spectacle. The flowering time in late winter to spring is an adaptation to its natural habitat, giving this orchid a special status among plant enthusiasts.

Despite its exotic appearance, Coelogyne cristata is comparatively easy to care for and adaptable. It prefers bright but indirect light and requires an environment with high humidity and cool to moderate temperatures between 10 and 18 °C. Even, moderate watering during the growth phase and reduced watering after blooming to simulate a cool rest period are essential for the health of this plant. This straightforward care makes it an ideal choice for terrariums and cool greenhouses, where it serves as an impressive addition to any collection.

In summary, Coelogyne cristata offers not only breathtaking flowers and elegant foliage but also robust adaptability, making it an excellent addition for exotic plant enthusiasts. Its ease of care and ability to withstand a cool rest period highlight its value and appeal as a terrarium plant.
