Coelogyne usitana x lawrenciana

This primary hybrid is one of the ones that blooms in succession from each spike.  By the time a flower has opened, the next bud is well on its way.  The lip color is best described as slightly browner than a dark brick red.  The spikes develop on immature new growth, similar to Pholidota chinensis.  My experience with this one and usitana is that not necessarily every new growth produces a spike, but most do.  Bright shade seems to suit it.  The leaves max out at about 11″ long and 3″ wide.
