    I just found this Cymb in the forest, it so beautiful. Each spike have 2 to 8 flowers. It have very thin leave (0,7cm) but long (up to 80cm).
    The colour so nice to me.

    First name is :Cymbidium quibeiense
    Second name: Cymbidium kanran

    hi, its a really nice one, from my research i think you are correct with your id, if your plant has only 2- 3 leaves and a purple sheath, then its separated from the "kanran".
