    My cymbidiums have suffered from their recent neglect probably more than most of the orchids - sp[ikes growing without any spiking, and few being straight ( or properly curved, if that is their habit) , but now after my wife's funeral , and all the family have gone back to their respective homes, I am left alone, and filling the time as full as possible is the best way to avoid feeling that awful nag of a big black hole in my life. So I have started spending every afternoon in the greenhouse doing a big move around, sort-out, and whatever.
    Few of these plants are in show condition, but a few are good enough to bring into the house to enjoy. All of the cymbidiums were repotted 2 years ago, and divided at the same time, and have been grown with an automatic watering system - micro-drip ( gardena) which has worked very well. My sort-out involves moving them to a new position with more head-room, and necessarily re-building the watering system at the same time.

    White flowers are always nice - if they don't spot from high humidity or cold, and the typical Bling Bling lip sets this off nicely to my mind.

    I'm sorry to hear about your loss. I hope working with the 'chids and doing some posting will help lift your spirits. And it sounds like the orchids are ready for some fussing over...we all know how therapeutic they can be. I love this cymbidium. I don't recall ever seeing a perfect white one here. It's just elegant.

    I too am sorry Geoff and hope the orchid nurturing is therapeutic for you. My thoughts are with you often. It's nice to see you back and this cymbidium is just beautiful!
