    Question Cymbidium bicolor?

    This was sold to me as Cymbidium bicolor 2 years ago as a single fan orchid. It has grown 1 new fan each year I have had it. It hasn't bloomed but I am wondering if it really is Cym bicolor. The fact it has no pb, I am beginning to doubt it. It seems quite Vanda like. Since I've had it, it hasn't lost a leaf.

    Any thoughts are appreciated!

    Looks like cym bicolor. It usually requires high light and lots of fertilizer to grow fast.

    Concur with Li, looks like bicolor. Requires a lot of light and atleast 4-5 growths to bloom. The one I have , was with a nursery and was not able to bloom them and the owner happily gave it me. I moved it to high light and grows quite well and bloomed the year which I got.

    Great! Now I just have to grow it another year or 2. So far I grow 1 new fan per year. Nice, healthy fans but only one. I'll move it outside today.
