    OMG! My passion for orchid collecting started when I bought a cym left over from an Atlanta Orchid Show this past February - it was part of a display with masses of salmon pink cyms and I got the last one - didn't even really know anything about it then. After it bloomed, repotting it became the issue of the year and, although I have been warned I don't live in the right place to rebloom it, I'm going to get it to spike this October/November if it kills me.

    Seeing these photos makes me wish I had more space for cyms - mine takes up the most space of all my orchids by far and I don't think I could fit another one in, although I almost bought one yesterday. Temptation....... Did you know Geoff (Dorsetman) used to have a greenhouse devoted just to cyms? Seeing these completely explains why.

    THANK YOU FOR THE TREAT! I know it's work to post them - I try to do it when I take my camera to the conservatory - but people SO appreciate it.
