    Cymbidium bicolor var. pubescens, or C. pubescens to some.

    What made this plant pubescent (glabrous = no presence of hairs)?

    As what I have observed from my typical Cymbidium bicolor, it is also pubescent same with Cymbidium finalysonianum and Cymbidium atropurpurea.

    Being pubescent and being glabrous is like night and day, or north and south. Pubescent refers to the condition of being vested with short, soft hairs. In the case of Cymbidium bicolor var. pubescens, the hairs are on the labellum disc.

    Hi Derek,
    Thanks for sharing. I'm actually going "hunting" for this bicolor this weekend in the wild. saw one a few years back growing on a slender tree and didn't quite know how to collect it then & had no experience growing them too. Instead, I collected a cym. finlaysonianum which is thriving so much today. Also trying to sow from seeds as the last bloom yielded a pod thanks to the over-zealous ants. Any idea how long it needs to mature and how to go about preparing the culture?
