    Default Ludisia discolor and Cymbidium hybrid in bud

    Ok, I cheated and bought these orchids budded, but hopefully these will successfully open up under my care. The Ludisia buds grew quite fast and the plantlets are so small. It's mind-boggling how it's supporting these buds without any roots (all I saw was a rhizome attached when I took a peek downstairs).

    Is it possible to gauge the color of cymbidiums flowers before they open? Mine has a very soft crimson tinge on buds (although difficult to see in the pics). I am hoping for some color and that it isn't a solid green/yellow. :|

    Looking good. I will leave your cymbidium orchid bud color to flower color to someone who grows more of these orchids than I do. The jewel orchid will be in bloom before you know it too. Once they put out the buds, it is not long before they open up with cute little flowers.

    cheers,
