    If it is in bright light during the day, about 10 more days would be my guess. It is looking great.

    Thanks Bruce. I keep it in an eastern window, but no direct sunlight, since a big building blocks the early sun. I sure do hope it openes till Christmas.

    I hope so Bruce. These orchids really test my patience ( especially the cymbidium).

    There are some fast blooming and slow blooming cyms. I'm constantly amazed. Some of the Redvale Beauty I have just jump out of their sheaths in days while I have other varieties that take months. In general many of the ensifolium based warm tolerant are rather fast in opening compared to some of the others.
