    Yew, my vendor was reluctant too so what I did was place a personal order for about 7 adult plants and about 6 seedlings which altogether came to about 3000 baht. This was in Oct of 2010. It was only after a couple of them started blooming about a year back that a lot of interest was generated and people started noticing cymbidiums. Finally when he was ready to take orders, he had an order for more than 100 adult cymbidiums!!! Someone has to take the initiative to build the interest.

    Bravo Prejith. Maybe that's what I should do.

    Super blooms!! It was photos like this that encouraged me buy several heat tolerant cyms. They have yet to bloom. They have been on the patio the entire winter hoping that the change in temps will make them set spikes.
    Again, great success on this plant.

    Beautiful, Prejith! Is it a standard sized cym or one of the "mini"s?

    Pavel, I wouldn't say it is a mini. I'd call it an intermediate. Bulb size moderate but the foliage can get quite long.
