    Beautiful. Do you know what the cross is ? I am very interested in getting some heat tolerant cyms. Been urging usual vendor to import some from Thailand but have been able to obtain only CYM Golden Vanguard and Chen's Ruby. I have bloomed Golden Vanguard only once and Chen's Ruby has re bloomed 3 times already. At the moment the latter has put out 2 spikes but 1 seems as if the buds will blast. I have not been able to post pictures recently as my computer has conked out and I don't know how to resize my pictures on my iPad. I' m supposed to get back my computer in a week or so.

    Thank you yew sung. It is a primary hybrid of dayanum and ensifolium. I have chen's ruby and golden vanguard too but seem to be growing more foliage than flowers. it is just behind this in the photo. i am patient though.

    wish you to get back your comp quickly . I know it is very difficult these days without computer

    Thanks Sriram for the info re the cross. I can see both the influence ensifolium and dayanum. I have posted pictures of my dayanum but I have yet to obtain an ensifolium.
