    Default cymbidium debbie ford

    I know that there aren't many cymbidium fans around, but I wanted to share this one since it is my first. Two spikes bloomed, one in bud, and two more on the way. Its in a gallon pot. It was an awesome deal at twenty bucks!

    Who could not be a Cymbidium fan? I think the problem most of us have who don't grow them is being able to provide the right conditions for blooming and having enough growing space. That's a beauty you have there. Good growing!

    I agree---beautiful choice and who could not love cymbidiums. Just wish they were easier to bloom and didn't take up so much space. I have two that I bought last year on sale. They are growing great and I did everything I read to do but still no spikes. A couple eyes sweeling but think they are new growths. Good luck with yours.

    I love Cymbidiums. And Dendrobiums. And Phalaenopsis. And Zygopetalum. And Oncidium...... That's a very handsome flower. I have several, but only one old enough to say that it's reblooming is my doing. It is getting closer and closer every day. You have a beautiful flower there. I think it should do OK in Sonoma County. I think....

    Love the pastel colour on this cym. Really love cymbidiums but very difficult to find the warm tolerant types here.

    Awesome blooms ! We are all cym fans here, just that we do not have the right conditions to bloom these beautiful plants ! You are lucky !

    I suppose that I jumped to conclusions! I never considered that few people grew them because of space/climate issues...I guess I am lucky. It is never really hot here other than maybe a week or two in summer. Even then, the nights are really cool and foggy. Thanks for surprising me! Look forward to seeing yours, Remo.

    Nah, Cymbidiums are ugly. That's why I think I only have 300++. That will definitely be on my wishlist. Thanks for sharing

    Cool

    HI, Jason,
    Yeah, cyms do take up a bit of room! I'm partial to the cascading type and you can mount them on fences, hang them up, etc to get a little better use of your space. Here is one which has been teasing me for about 6 weeks and has just now started opening. Enjoy!
