    Default Cymbidium Pink Pearl

    Very large cymbidium, with huge flowers. Plant is breaking out of a 5 gallon pot so will be divided after flowers fade. This one dates back to 1989.

    What a gorgeous plant. Its heavenly. Do they smell?

    5 gallon pot...I can't even comprehend that big of a pot. Unbelieveable. What type of potting mix do you use?

    Oh wow! That is huge and look at all of those beautiful blooms. Diane, you are taking care of this one really well. I wouldn't hate it if a piece jumped into the mail and flew my way when you cut it up. (like I need more plants that get huge!)

    Cheers,
    BD

    This one has no fragrance, but some do. It is grown in SuperSoil potting mix as cymbidiums are terrestrial orchids.

    Wow! That is absolutely, without a doubt incredible! What a plant! What blooms! So fantastic. I'm with Bruce--wouldn't turn the postman away bringing one of those up the doorstep. Nicely done!
