    brown how brown ? maybe you have Coelogyne from different section, in this section proliferae only Coel longipes has long bulbs , but I saw on it only white flowers. brownish flowers has schultesii but again more oval bulbs and similar ratio with flowers/plant.
    well without picture I could have 50 guesses, like candoonensis, alvinlokii, kinabulensis and many more... so need see pic of it.

    It looks like there is a spike developing. I will take photos once the flower opens.

    Dreamy, sigh... would it being a species that grows on warm to hot conditions be too much to ask?

    I asked Andy if he had this species. He only has one in his personal collection.

    For European Union members:
    I may have couple plants to spare but won't sell it cheap... could possibly exchange for BS of Aeranthes henrici, one will be on eBay.

    Regards

    Here's a photo of ther plant I have labeled as tsii. It has long lasting infloresences, and will bloom over many seasons.

    image.jpeg Hi all...just stumbled on to this thread. Had my tsii awarded a CHM back in February...of course will be listed as ecarinata. I don't have a good flower photo, but will post one as soon as I get permission from the judging photographer. I don't believe it is as dark as the one from Piotr, but maybe a little brighter? I purchased mine from the Perners about 3 years ago. In the photo below, the middle spike had bloomed last year and was joined by one on each side this year. There are two more coming and they will not bloom until next year. Will certainly be interesting to see how many years a spike will continue to bloom.

    William your plant looks surely different, and baring in mind how narrow range this sp has in nature I doubt it could vary so much. So now will need wait for your flowers ;-P I am very curious!

    Chuck it is a good news it flowers again and again, i think the colour vary not only from plant to plant but may depend from lighting nd pH...

    Last time I was in China I saw this one in an orchid greenhouse.
    Exept, the one I saw had more of a cherry-red flower.
    I should have of gotten it.
    Yes, there are greenhouses in China.

    Piotr I grow it very bright in a greenhouse, and it is generally cool nights (10-12 C) and dry in the Winter. I use primarily rain water (acidic), so have recently started adding Cal Mag in the last few months...will have to remember to check color next year.

    Hi, still no idea from me. Any idea where it originated from? I seen other species with similar blooms, but not on that type of plant.
