    !Thank you!

    Any idea how long the blooms should last after they open? I've had phalaenopsis that have lasted 5 months, then a different type [no idea what it was] that only lasted about a month.

    This is the one that only lasted a month.

    The second one is in the Cattleya family. My guess is that it has Brassavola nodosa in the parentage.

    Some cymbidium orchid blooms are long lasting - a month or more. Love your Bc Maikai in the second photo! Beautiful blooms.

    cheers,

    Cymbidium flowers should last 4-6 weeks

    You Catt hybrid could be BC Maikai as suggested or it could be the Remar clone of BC Morning Glory.

    My cym which I purchased in Oct already in bloom eventually grew a total of 4 spikes and I just removed the final spike from the plant this week.

    Does anyone know which orchid is this?
    I think it's a Beallara Tahoma Glacier.
    What do you think?
