    Beautiful, Kitty! You should be very proud - cyms aren't easy to grow, and even harder to bloom. You must have them in just the right spot. Are they in SemiHydro?

    i don't have experience much about Cym,this pink one i cut of half of the root and repot it in a bigger and deeper pot but for another 2 new one,i only move them without disturb the root ball.let see how they're doing in the future.

In one of his articles on growing cyms he recommended using very deep 'cymbidium' pots to encourage the cyms to produce very long flowering stems. His side-by-side pictures of the same sibling cymbidiums grown in shallow 'normal' pots and another in deeper cymbidium pots clearly demonstrate the dramatic difference - the spike on the plant in the deeper pot was at least a third taller!
    thank you uncle Yew...yesterday i've just changed the pot of last orchid to a deeper one..i look the picture from last year and found the different only a number of stem but the length is the same. what do you think if i put slow release fertilizer ?are they harming a new small stem?
