Introducing the exquisite Coelogyne marthae, a botanical gem hailing from the lush rainforests of Sarawak, Borneo. Thriving in the humid, lower canopy environments of flooded heath forests, this small to medium-sized epiphyte boasts a captivating presence with its unique characteristics.

Each Coelogyne marthae plant features ovate-oblong, flattened pseudobulbs spaced delicately between .24 to .52 inches apart, supporting apical lanceolate leaves that gracefully narrow into a petiolate base. As the plant matures, expect it to produce robust, large ovoid pseudobulbs measuring approximately 4 to 6 inches, accompanied by thin yet stiff foliage.

During the spring season, prepare to be enchanted as Coelogyne marthae adorns itself with a profusion of green-yellowish flowers, each boasting a generous size of 2.8 inches in diameter. These blooms, simultaneously opening on a proteranthous or synanthous inflorescence, release a fragrance reminiscent of talcum baby powder, filling your space with an irresistible allure.

Cultivating Coelogyne marthae is a gratifying experience, as it thrives in conditions mimicking its natural habitat. Provide ample humidity and warmth, replicating the tropical climate it calls home. Ensure well-draining media, such as orchid bark or sphagnum moss, and maintain a consistent watering schedule to keep the roots hydrated without waterlogging.

Position your Coelogyne marthae in bright, indirect light, avoiding prolonged exposure to direct sunlight which can scorch its delicate foliage. As new growth emerges, anticipate the development of impressive flower spikes, pendulous and reaching up to a foot in length. With proper care, each spike may yield up to 12 fragrant flowers, creating a breathtaking display of nature's beauty.

This is a blooming size imported bare root orchid division; newly repotted in a 4" pot; about 1 to 2 years to bloom; Grown from seed; Limited!

Whether you're a seasoned orchid enthusiast or a budding green thumb, Coelogyne marthae promises to captivate with its elegant form and intoxicating fragrance, making it a must-have addition to any botanical collection. Revel in the splendor of nature's craftsmanship with this remarkable orchid species.
