Introducing Coelogyne kaliana - a stunning orchid species that will captivate any plant enthusiast with its graceful presence and beautiful blooms. Native to the montane forests of peninsular Malaysia, this medium-sized epiphytic or occasional terrestrial orchid thrives in cool environments, making it an excellent addition to any orchid collection.

Coelogyne kaliana features distinct characteristics that set it apart from other orchids. Its pseudobulbs are ovoid and possess three prominent ridges, giving them a unique and eye-catching appearance. Each pseudobulb carries two leathery pleated leaves that are narrow and elliptic to lanceolate in shape. These leaves, with their coriaceous texture and plicate surface, add to the overall elegance of the plant. The leaves are densely nerved with seven to nine distinct veins, gradually narrowing below into a petiolate base.

When it comes to flowering, Coelogyne kaliana does not disappoint. In the spring and summer, this orchid produces racemes of white flowers that emerge mainly from the center of new growth. The blossoms themselves are truly a sight to behold, measuring approximately 3 inches (7.5 cm) in size. The inflorescence is heteranthous, arching to pendulous, slightly fractiflex, and can range from 3.2 to 12 inches (8 to 30 cm) in length. A mature pseudobulb gives rise to this spectacular inflorescence, which carries between 4 to 12 simultaneously opening flowers. Persistent floral bracts add an extra touch of elegance to the overall presentation of the blooms.

To cultivate Coelogyne kaliana successfully, provide it with the ideal conditions it requires. As a cool-growing orchid, it thrives in environments with moderate temperatures. Aim for temperatures ranging from 15°C to 25°C (59°F to 77°F) during the day, with a slight drop at night. This species prefers bright but indirect light, so placing it near a window with filtered sunlight is ideal. Montane forests serve as its natural habitat, so try to recreate similar conditions by providing high humidity levels and good air circulation. Moss can be used as a growing medium, and the plant can be grown either epiphytically or occasionally terrestrially.

This is a blooming size in a 3" pot newly repotted, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited!

With its remarkable characteristics and exquisite blooms, Coelogyne kaliana is a must-have for orchid enthusiasts and collectors. Bring the beauty of the montane forests of Malaysia into your home or greenhouse with this captivating orchid. Be prepared to be amazed by its graceful growth and stunning floral displays throughout the spring and summer seasons.
