Evening all

I'm not moveing towards growing minature orchids even though a few posts have been them. I got this Cymbid today after nearly buying it at the Hinckely Orchid Show.

Lovely little thing glad to have it in the collection I really do like these tigrinum hybrids, hopefully my tigrinum will flower soon now its grlwing well.

The cross is Cymbidium tigrinum X Cymbidium Alexanderi

The last shot is a group shot thought it would be instresting to see the difference, in height of my hybrids and in Cymbid's in general.

Hey Blondie you are going over to the dark side with your cyms :lol:. That is probably the Tiger Tail 'May Princess' clone you have there, it certainly looks like it and it is the most common one around.

Very nice Chris, it doesn't seem so long ago that if you wanted a small, compact cymbidium the only choice was 'Golden Elf' or 'Golden Elf'.
Now you've found some more, keep 'em coming !
