    Cool Cymbidium Twilight

    On a trip to the nursery I found this wonderful cymbidium. It has six spikes and when it's done will need a repot. I was fortunate since this was the last really nice large one they had left.

    That's so beautiful. Since it's blooming in Florida can I assume that it's heat tolerant?

    Yes, this particular nursery only stocks warm growers. I leave these outside on the east wall of my greenhouse for the winter and if I am careful watering in the spring I get nice spikes of flowers.
