    Default New Phal and new Cymbidium

    Hi Everyone,

    I just wanted to share with all of you photos of my latest orchids. They are a gift from my wife (an early Valentine's Day Gift) That was nice from her!
    The first one is a Phal and the second is a mini Cymbidium. I don't know much about Cymbidiums but I know that they can tolerate colder temps and need more light. I am still doing my homework on that one. So if you guys have some advice on that one, I would really appreciate it

    Hey Salvador, very nice gifts! Good fotos also. Good luck with them. Looks like you get plenty of light thru the glass also. Nice setup.

    What a huge beautiful phal, the leaves are amazing! The flowers are such a delicate pink too. The cymbids are also very pretty. If my porch could handle such a large plant i'd have a couple. The owner of a local nursery promised to dig up a small clump of her warm-growing mini's, but we have to wait for warmer weather....i'm going to put them next to my spath under the palm tree.

    Thanks for the messages everyone!

    I was really surprised with the size of the Phal. It has nine leaves (some of which are very huge!) I can see also that a new growth is coming out near one of the leaves. I hope that it will be a second spike!

    As for the mini Cymbidium, I placed it right on the still of these glass bricks (East and north facing) and I hope that this will be a good location for it, since it needs more light. I will go with trial and error

    My birthday is coming up very soon so I hope my wife will bring me more Orchids! I will start hinting

    Talking

    I actually thought of buying her an Orchid, but then again she will instantly know that I bought it for myself. ha ha ha. She already thinks that I spend too much time with my Orchids

    Instead I ordered 13 beautiful red roses for her which I am sure she will appreciate and enjoy....

    Beautiful Phal.
    I am quite fond of green cymbdiums as well.

    For cymbidiums, they prefer very bright light and cool temperatures.
    Warm temperatures will encourage bigger leaf growth than flowers.
