    Default New NoId Cymbidium

    The Cymbidium I got as a Christmas present has lost its flowers and since I hate seeing the dining table empty of flowers, I got me this one. Hope you like it. I must try to find out what I'm doing wrong in their culture because I never get them to rebloom. As soon as the loose their flowers, they go outside in the garden. At least four o five of them have been outside since February-March last year. They get full sun from sunrise until early afternoon or mid afternoon in summer. They have grown nice and they have put out many new growths, but I think neither of them are spikes. Perhaps I'm not regular enough in fertilizing. Any tips will be more than welcome.

    Hope you like it. It has three more spikes to open.

    How low do the temps get at night? I understand cool growing cyms need to be exposed to cool nites possibly down to near freezing.

    At night we're getting approx. 3-5 º C, but we've had a few night with slight freeze (+/- -3 or -4 ºC). It hardly ever gets any colder here. A fellow member from a Spanish forum gets his to rebloom every year and where he lives (about 30 Km from my place) it's even less cold than where I live.

    Thank you Ron. I'll keep these tips in mind. I'm planning on repotting them all before the end of March into tall (but not wide) clay pots. Hopefully next season I won't have to buy any Cymbidium in bloom because all of mine are blooming (I think I have at least 10-12 of them). The oldest one I bought it as a birthday present for myself in July 2010. It was quite cheap because it was out of season. Soon after having it home, it suffered from sun burn and I had to cut almost all the leaves. I managed to keep it alive and slowly it has been growing new pseudobulbs, but they stay very small. I'll see if there is any improvement when I repot it.
    I have a few with new growth that I can't identify wether they're new bulbs or spikes (but I'd bet for new p-bulbs).

    fingers crossed that they are spikes!
    Jesus..Cyms like to be pot bound. I've had them break clay pots. Also trying to repot from a clay pot usually requires the pot to be smashed to accomplish it. You may be better to repot into plastic and use a clay pot as a sleeve, if you want more decorative.

    The clay pot is not so much for decorative reasons as to get better air flow to the roots and have evaporative cooling. Perhaps I'll try with some in clay pots, other in plastic and see if there's any difference.

    Night temperatures in the summer months around 55-60F work best for reblooming these along with abundant sunshine. Warm nights in the summer inhibit flowering that's why I cannot grow them where I live.
