    Default Cymbidium Golden Elf - warm tolerant cymbidium

    My Cym Golden Elf is blooming with two spikes - star-shaped,clear light lemon-yellow coloured flowers measuring 2.5in across and 3in hugh. Last year at about the same time it had 5 spikes but I couldn't photograph it as I was away on holidays in Hong Kong then.

    I wish there were more warm tolerant cymbidiums that I could grow. By the way this is a Cym ensifolium cross.

    I love cymbidium, most of the beautiful one are cold grower, great to have this plant in your collection. Like golden color blooms.

    I love this cymbidium. Ours fills the greenhouse with such a great fragrance when it blooms. And the bright, sunshinny color is outstanding.

    Cheers,

    wow, yours has nice clear colour and shape.

    I agree, this is a warm tolerance one, as well as being smaller than standard cymbidiums.
    I also recommend crosses with Cym. sinense too (or just growing the species)
    I have a Maureen Carter and a collection of ensifolium

    Thanks everyone for looking in.
    Ron, no special treatment for this cym. I grow it on the same bench as my semi-terete vandas - just plenty of water and sun.
