I bought my first Cymbidium here in Fort Worth Texas last Easter. I feel in love with the beautiful flowers and the leaves and so I repotted it and put it in my Greenhouse during the growing season.Everybody told me it wouldn't make it because of the fact that at the time it sets it 's spikes in August 1-September 15 there is no time that the night temperature gets down to the 50 degrees (F). So I poured ice and sometimes just cold ice water on it a lot at night during this period. (A friend from Adelaide Australia which has similar weather patterns as Fort Worth gave me the idea) And wow on Jan 2 2009 look what appeared. Only one spike and four flowers but I was thrilled beyond belief.I have bought several more and in hopes of getting more spikes and more flowers to come up this year I am going to move it out of the greenhouse into a place where it will get more morning sun and more air. I have also changed my Fertilizer Regime in a big way (Again from friend in Adelaide). So here's hoping.
