Cascading Cymbidium ‘Mary Green’ is a flowering machine, with multiple spikes of 20-30, 5.5cm flowers on cascading stems from early August. It is sure to take the limelight!
Mary Green Orchids are The Cymbidiums of the future. Mary Green's are fast growing and will flower earlier, on smaller plants, and with more flower spikes; up to 10 on four year old established plants. An excellent choice for beginners because of their ease of care and early show.
These cool growing Cascading 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.
