    Default growing intermediates in warm climates

    Is it possible to bloom? I love cymbidiums and most of them are intermediate growers. I know finlaysonianum is warm loving. Please enlighten me.

    Rocky--you can grow Cymbidum Finlaysonianum very easy with little problems there in Manila. I have 3 of these Cyms all growing well and flowering often here in Cebu.Name:  Cymbidium Findlaysonianum-MoalBoal-1B.JPG

    Purification are a rip off--very expensive there for even common orchids--bought my largest Cym from Busay for 300p-the other 2 from Felix at MoalBoal orchids for free.
