    Default NOID Cymbidium

    Help, I only have 1 pseudobulb left of this massive plant and I am trying to salvage it. There is new growth and activity but it will be a few years to restore it to its original state. This photo was taken 2 years ago and its the only photo I have. When it was in bloom the spikes were almost 5' tall and thrived in the Florida heat. When I moved it from my other house it either got too much sun or water. If anyone knows an approximate cymbidium that will grow in my climate please let me know. I think this is Purple Temple??

    I can't answer your question, but that is one gorgeous plant...It's the kind of thing you see in the hotel lobbies in Hawaii. I am sending you positive vibes in your efforts to save it.

    That is very beautiful Cym. well maybe you can get sphagnum moss just to cover the bottom/ base of the pseudobilb first of all soak into fungicide for about 10 to 20 minutes then cover with the moss use pot that having multiple holes and charcoal make sure you hang it to avoid snails or sludge that love the young roots, put under the shady area to encourage growth formation for your place make sure dont let the medium dry completely.

    What a beautiful specimen - and heat tolerant to boot!!! Hope you will be able to restore it to its former glory. Perhaps Presam can offer some advice.
