    Default Successfully over wintered this Cym indoors

    This is a tip from an orchid grower, she said once the spikes are in bud move the Cym into the coolest part of the house in my case it's the garage there is no heating and the temp is just slightly warmer than outside. Around 11 Celsius I left my Cym there for a week which I'm glad I did we've had several windy days that could have ruined all the buds! After a week in the garage in the bedroom it goesat the moment its doing great and the first opening bloom is about to appear. The bedroom temp is around 15 - 25 Celsius hope this helps anyone wanting to enjoy there Cyms
    Once a year in glory.
