    Smile Cymbidium in bloom

    This is a Cymbidium, which I just got today. I wanted a larger one but thats what I was able to get in the market. I like the color. It has two spikes and two new growths, one of which I think is another spike.

    I really like the color of the flowers.
    I just hope I can get my other cym (mini)to re-bloom It has a new growth, but its still to early to tell whether its a spike.

    I love how pretty cymbidiums are. This one's color is great. Very elegant in the photo behind that chair.

    Cheers,

    I love these...they make a wonderful display. The yellow with the red lip is also the one I usually bring home. I love how delicate the coloring is...nice one!

    That is nice! Wish I could bloom them easily but not necessarily and easy task in an apt. Then too, they are generally far too big for me. Ah well, I'll just have to enjoy looking at yours!

    For this specific one, it was easy to convice my wife to take into our house as a year ago, she expelled all other Orchids from our Kingdom to a special holding area adjacent to my car parking, called the "Orchid Room".

    I convinced her to get this one as another House plant which was placed in the same area died mysteriously(I swear I didn't have anything to do with it) and she wanted something nice in its place.

    She loves it actually. Lets hope that when the blooms fade though, that she doesn't kick it out also!!
