    Default Pink Cymbidium.... sigh....NOID

    This cym. actually bloomed nearer reddish on the first spikes, but this last one is a lovely shell pink. It's a warmth-tolerant cym. and has produced at least 6 spikes this season alone. It's so very lovely, I'm more than usually disappointed that it's a NOID - but grateful that I have it in my collection!

    Lovely flower, and nice pictures too!

    I bought several noid Cym from local grocery stores last year. Since none of them is spiking, I guess they are not warm growing ones. I will try ice water method this coming summer to see if I could get them bloom for me.
