Orchid of the Week: Coelogyne pandurata

This week’s orchid is Coelogyne pandurata, aka Black Orchid (due to its black lip):

This plant is native to the rainforests of Borneo and can be grown in the home under warm, humid conditions to mimic its natural habitat.

I just love the unique color of this orchid – that green color which is not often seen on blooms. Add to that the black lip and it’s a true stunner!
