    Default Cymbidium Countdown Supermarket "Chartwell"

    Here is a new hybrid for you guys!

    In our local OS, we name any NOIDs after the store we got them from, (as most come from supermarkets or what you guys call "Box stores") as a joke, so as you can see, mine came from a supermarket at Chartwell haha

    This is the third year i have had this, and this year, even though it had no name, won 1st in the Novice Miniature section! WOOP! Unfortunatly, i cannot find my certificate...

    Very nice Jordy! Pretty color.
    There is a southern supermarket that fills up with pots of Cymbidiums right around Mother's day

    Cymbidiums i think are making a come back here in NZ, people are starting to stay away from the Phals,and go for the Cymbidiums, and also the odd Dendrobium nobile that are making it on to shop shelves. Fingers crossed this will jump start the orchid movement in NZ again
