    Sure

    These pot we usually to growth Cybidium, and some with hole in the body and bottom, but some have hole only in the bottom.

    The size is around 100 to 200mm diameter.

    When there is flower blooming, we usually put them inside the china pot for show it in the living room.

    Your cymbs are gorgeous. When many of them bloom together, the fragrance must be heavenly!
    Why do you think they are doing better after you moved them to partially indoors?
