You are exactly right about the cool nights. My cymbidium was my first major orchid and I asked for - and got- a lot of advice about it. Geoff, aka, Dorsetman, is a particular expert on cyms and an absolute fount of information. Anyway, you may have some trouble getting cool enough nights in FLA to get it to spike. (I guess I should first point out that the new, smaller, warmth-tolerant cyms aren't quite as temperamental as the standards - I don't know which you have.) I live in Atlanta, where nights start getting cool at the end of October or so, and I don't expect to see a spike on it until well into November, if at all. Cyms are just as happy when it's 40 degrees outside, so be forewarned. They're tough because they like it quite cool but very bright during the day, and they need a good 20 degree drop in temp at night. If mine spikes, it will be my first, so good luck to both of us!
