Default coelogyne cristata var. lemoniana

anyone have experience with coelogyne cristata? i recently purchased a very
fragrant and beautiful var. lemoniana in an 8 inch plastic pot.

was told by grower that this orchid could be grown either in a pot or
basket w/ any fairly 'soft,well drained compost' YET the grower has grown
his for years in nothing - plastic pots w/ the plants 'plopped' in 'em...he
waters & fertilizes every week.

from what i've read they seem to grow easily, grow cool and don't like to be
repotted.
do they like shade, semi shade? what temps are best for day/evening?
humidity requirements?

would truly appreciate any guidance you experts can provide...

I have straight coelogyne cristata which I grow with cymbidium. It's
only a young plant but has grown very well. Hopefully, it'll bloom
this year. They need bright light to bloom, similar to cymbidium. Give
them very little water in winter.
Hope this helps.

Top o' the mornin' to ya! (my best Irish accent) They seem to like cool &
grow in mist? Suppose you have J. Pfal's Encyclopedia, but just in case.....

| hi all,
|
| attended my first officially sanctioned AOS show in sumner, wa this past
| wkend.
| a beautiful array of exquisite orchids to drool over that was almost
beyond
| belief.
|
| here's my question - fell in love with & purchased a large coelogyne
| cristata var. lemoniana.
| (synonym-cymbidium speciosissimum)
| it is in a round 10 inch plastic pot w/ what appears to be very little
| compost. there are at least 14 cascading raceme (is that correct use of
| word?) - ie., multifloral - multiple flowers on each cascading stalk.
yes,
| educate me - i'm sure this is a mangled description :-
|
| i've read the information provided by simon schuster's guide to orchids
| but...book learning vs. practical application can often be significantly
| different!
|
| so, if any of y'all happen to have this lovely in your collection - your
| care instructions would be very much appreciated.
|
| thanks
|
