    I am asking for your opinion and help. I am going to purchase this exact plant in the attached pictures. (The seller has one mounted on a teak slab and one plant in a hanging pot. I want the one that is in the pot.) The 3rd picture with the full blooms is what the seller claims the orchid will look like in full bloom. If you look closely at the picture of the potted plant, you can see one of the trailing 'vines' with blooms on it. And it does look like the picture with full blooms.

    These are the sellers own pictures from his store in Bangkok.

    The seller is saying it is coelogyne thinervis. I did some surfing on the internet, and the blooms look quite different from what I see on the internet. But the actual plant (bulbs and leaves) do look the same.

    Could this plant be a cultivar of this plant?

    I am purchasing it no matter what and the seller is holding/saving it for me.

    Thanks for your valuable time and opinion and help.

    The blooming plant is not Coelogyne trineveris. I don't know what it is. What counts is that you like it. Perhaps someone else here will know what it is.

    Thanks Marni. I think it may be a coelogyne, but who knows what.

    I also think it may be what Thai people call a chandelier orchid. Yes I do like it and will buy it. Thanks again.

    I have a few Pholidota species that look similar. Related to Coelogyne. Can't help down to the species level, but this might be the genus, or a closely related one.

    Roberta. Thank You. I think you may be right. I am searching Pholidota on the internet now, and there are many images that are very similar. Thanks!

    I have some coelogynes here. And couldn't distinguish them by the looks of the plant. Some have quite similar bulbs and leaves. Some only slightly different.

    I found it!
    Coelogyne imbricata or Pholidata imbricata. Both names are accepted. Common names: Rattlesnake Orchid or Necklace Orchid.


    Thanks Nisa.
