    Oh yes they do indeed. I've been a victim twice already. And on both times several vandaceous orchids were stolen including an expensive Vanda sanderiana. And what's scary is that these were all planted within the fence. Made several improvements on the fence since then to discourage the robbers.

    The fruit still keeps on growing until now. This recent photo shows the fruit six months after it first appeared. The previous post shows the fruit as it looked last May.

    Hi angel. I had this Cymbidium and I discovered that some of its seed could easily germinate in a semi-dry loamy soil. I just don't know how long does it take to germinate from the seed. I only saw the seedlings growing in the pot of one of my terrestrial plant which wasn't watered regularly. The pot is located under the coconut tree where the mother Cymbidium was mounted. Perhaps the seeds was dispersed down towards the pot after some of its fruit had matured and dried out. Maybe the soil contained symbiotic fungi they need to grow with.

    Hello Medel. That is some interesting information. Thanks for sharing. Unfortunately, that fruit suddenly disappeared. I think a passerby picked it off the plant since this cymbidium grows outside my fence. This plant has multiplied nalturally through the ten years it has been with me. It started with just one segment with two leaves that was severed from the mother plant. Now it's all around the trunk of the Christmas palm.
