    Talking My Cymbidiella rhodochila is opening!

    This is my Cymbidiella rhodochila. It's also known by the synonym Cymla. pardalina. It is from Madagascar, where they grow on staghorn ferns (Platycerium madagascariensis.) It grows in mountainous forests at altitudes of 600-800 meters.

    I can't take credit for the blooms, cause I bought it in spike at the SWROGA show, but I thought y'all might like to see it. Has anyone ever grown one of these before?

    Thanks for looking...

    Nice one, mine is almost open. They like high light but not direct mid day sun, and lots of water. Make sure the medium drains well.
