Cymbidium Hybrids

Cymbidium Isle Flamingo - Flower photo by Richard LindbergCymbidium Mighty Sunset - Flower photo by Richard LindbergI get as many, if not more, opportunities for free cymbidiums as any other orchid. I don't take them because I have no space for them. The few I have had died from the combination of too much sun in the summer and too much water in the winter.

While the new growing area is not being built for growing Cymbidiums, I am going to give them space for a 12-foot double row of plants along the east side of the space. They grow in conditions just like Laelia anceps and will not take any space away from the plants hanging overhead. I don't know that I will buy any, but at least I can take free Cymbidiums with a clear conscience.
