Cascading Cymbidium Orchids are exceptionally elegant plants and impressively long lasting. The flowers are slightly smaller than standard Cymbidiums, but they open in big numbers on pendent stems.
These Cascading Cymbidium Orchids are cool growing. They flower from 4 to 12 weeks on the plant and 2 to 4 weeks if cut for the vase. The flower stems can grow up to 75cm so it is best to plant them in hanging baskets or elevated pots to allow the stem room to grow.
Cascading 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.
Cascading Cymbidium Orchids make ideal pot and hanging basket plants. They will take a few years to settle in and flower, but they are worth the wait as they will bloom reliably for years to come.
