    Default Cymbidium finlaysonianum

    Seldom have I been so excited by a blooming orchid. Perhaps it's because I've had this Cymbidium finlaysonianum for almost 9 years now, lots of leaves and roots but no flowers. A second spike (see photo) has already started to form. And I like the exotic look of the yellowish flowers on those long slender pendant spikes. And fragrant too.

    I mean that there is no definite blooming season and some plants in the same area mat be blooming but others are not.Some have not bloomed for years though they are mature plants. BTW they are quite common in our part of the country growing wild on old rain trees and on rocks near the sea.

    I see. Maybe that's why mine took all of 9 years. hahahaha. I attached this one on the Christmas Palm atop the pteroceras and below the oncidium. I love its color Yew. Reminds me of sweet jackfruit.
