    Thank you guys. I am looking into strategies of improving the flower count on Cyms. It is tough in this British climate to come up with a decent flower count, and keep their needs of dry summer and following winter rest. We just don't get dry summer! No such thing. I am contemplating of keeping them indoors this year as I'd usually shift all my orchids outside during 'summer'. Really don't know what the British growers do, would be good to have someone come forth with suggestions.
