    Thanks you guys!

    Hi Julie,
    Mr. Fuss is really a non-fussy guy. He blooms every year! Can't beat that!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    But Hoa,

    How can you post Cyms without mentioning fragrance?

    ...inquiring noses want to know!

    Hi Julie,
    I don't mention it because they just don't have it. Those were bred for look, not for smell. If they do then I would say that just like in a previous cymbidium post. These smaller cyms got the influences from Cym. sinense and the likes. As such, many still retain the fragrance of these species.
    Cheers. Hoa.

    PS. What were you thinking? In Southern Cal, cyms are garden plants. We just leave them in our yard, let the rain and the sun taking are of them. And they bloom around this time of the year... Hehhehhee! I know people who have many hundreds and one nuts case with 3000 cyms!

    I'm trying to figure out if I can store my dining room table next winter to make room for a tracyanum. I figure the Cym would be happy outside until Oct/Nov when nights dip below 40. Then I only have to make room for it indoors until Apr or so. Sounds easy on paper...

    I know, I know... You already warned me about its size, Hoa. I thought, "hey - whatever!" Then at a friend's for dinner on Tues, they showed my their greenhouse where they had 3 monster sized pots (12"+) of Cyms, all with the same flower. They said they'd divided the plant a few times. I nearly passed out!

    Hehehhhe! Standard cyms are like that! However, I should note that happens only after you grow them well after so many years. At the beginning, they grow very slowly! BTW, you could go for miniature cyms!
    Cheers. Hoa.
