A stunning new orchid to add to your collection. The flowers are big, growing up to 11cm across with up to 18 on each arched stem. The blooms are white with a soft pink blush and red patterned lip. A beauty that blooms August/September.
These cool growing Cymbidium Orchids are exceptionally elegant plants and wonderfully long lasting. The large flowers open on upright stems in big numbers.
They flower from 4 to 12 weeks on the plant and 2 to 4 weeks if you cut the stems for the vase. As cool growing orchids they require cold winter nights in order to flower well (10-15C at night).
Cymbidium Orchids are easy to grow as long as you cater for their basic needs:
1. Use an orchid growing mix.
2. Position the plant in dappled light.
3. Keep the plant just moist, watering frequently in spring and summer while it is growing, then keep just moist in winter. Fertilise well (twice a month with a diluted liquid orchid fertiliser spring to summer, then drop it back to once a month in autumn and winter. Or use a slow release orchid fertiliser as per the directions on the package.
Cymbidium Orchids make ideal pot and hanging basket plants. They may take a few years to settle in and flower, but they are worth the wait and will flower reliably for decades to come.
