ok let me start by saying, my mother grows them and so very well... and for what seems hardly no effort at all!!!
I have issues with growing them! in fact I have never flowered a Cymbidium in all my life!!! I have killed (yes, I am terrible) a few of them. Of course lately, I have got a couple more which have somehow stayed alive. I try and not fuss over them as much as the other orchids... which means they tend to dry out a bit more and is in a grow area which isn't as well shaded, in fact gets half a days sun so fingers crossed...
ps this is a good topic as I would like to know more about how everyone grows theirs.
