    I bought it with buds it started opening the blooms the next day
    The blooms look healthy, and the cymb is in the same place as the other cymbs were, but all the blooms are about half open
    I am wondering is there a problem with the cymb are is this particular hybrid blooming this way??

    The plant looks healthy, so I'd be patient and see if the flowers open more.. None of the flowers or buds look blasted to me. Orchids move slowly especially when you want it to move faster so badly.

    Thanks
    It could also be that this particular hybrid behaves this way
    I went to the market today, to look at the other identical cymbs to this one
    They all look this way
    Anyway I will wait and see

    As light goes I put it in the same place as the other cymbs that I bought in bud. One other that I got as a gift from a patient I left on my desk in the night duty room, with very little light and it almost opend completely over night. It is also true that we had a clouded week with heavy snowfall so maybe less light was available. It is been staying at this stage of opening for the last week.

    I'm also not dismissing the variety theory. Honestly, I haven't personally grown cyms. However, several varieties of orchids seem to share traits of folded over blooms when light is too low. I even had a phal. fold backwards once in an attempt to recieve more light.
