Hi

I picked this one up today, I have been looking for this hybrid for years after I lost mine. So very happy to have it back, once it has flowered I'll repot it in to a mix I like.

I think my problem last time was the mix it is in. I like the fact it is so small unlike most Cymbidiums you see. It's a cross between, Cym. floribundum × Cym. tigrinum

Compact, floriforous and to my mind a pleasing shape to the flower. And it's nice to see someone else with some Cyms!

I like this one for its flower to foliage ratio.
Most of the Cyms I've grown seemed to have spikes almost hidden amomgst a lot of foliage.
These flowers really stand out from the foliage.
