    8 spikes, 51 buds and flowers. In a 10 inch pot - which is as large as I want to go , larger and it would be difficult for an old man to handle , carrying it etc...
    First flower was open in October -just - and the last spike has yet to open a flower. I guess it will last until maybe the end of January,
    What's not to like ?

    Very nice! Excellent images as well!

    My cool growing Cym is in spike with maybe 2 spikes. The second one hasn't declared its intentions yet.

    Awesome! My one Cymbidium is struggling with mealie bugs. I have it quarantined from my other orchids, but treatment is sporadic, esp since I broke my arm badly this summer. It's holding its own, but not in shape to hope for flowers yet. Maybe some day... Yours is really nice.

    Speechless from this monster CYM. Mine just started forming the spike but only one that I can count for the next season.

    Beautiful colour! Have 5 now and I don't think any will flower this year. Brought them inside too soon.
