Coelogyne cristata is a cool growing, epiphytic orchid; this species originates from the Himalayas, Assam, Bhutan, Java, Sikkim, and Nepal.

One of the common names of Coelogyne cristata is the Crested Coelogyne.  Coelogyne cristata will quickly grow to be far too big to grow in a terrarium, but this orchid does grow well in the conditions provided by terrarium growing.  Coelogyne cristata would thrive if grown inside a glasshouse or conservatory.
