Cymbidium Orchids Online
Being native to the foothills of the Himalayas, Cymbidium Orchids are acclimatized to cool and warm weather. They are divided into categories, cool growing and heat tolerant cymbidiums based on the temperature they thrive. They bear tall spikes that bloom with 10 to 25 flowers, with 2.5" to 6" width, and last for one to three months. With long slender leaves and beautiful fragrances, Cymbidium orchids are very popular as indoor plants.
Light and Shade
If you grow Cymbidium outdoors, place the plant in a way such that it receives bright but diffuse light, since direct sunlight may burn its leaves and produce black spotting. It’s better to place them in south or east-facing windows so they receive light in the right amount.
These orchids enjoy moist conditions all the time. A fine spray over the foliage, in addition to pot watering, would be good for the plant, especially during sunny weather. Cymbidium orchids grow actively from spring to early fall. During this time, Cymbidium should be watered regularly. From the time of fall to winter, these orchids don’t show much growth, so watering can be decreased.
Watering in the morning is recommended, as this helps the leaves to dry and avoid bacterial growth overnight. If possible, use rainwater or distilled water
Temperature and Humidity
Though these orchid plants can be cultured indoors quite well, you may grow Cymbidium outdoors between May to early October. In late summer and early fall, night temperatures that fall below -9.5°C (15°F) initiate the development of flower spikes. Keep in mind, these are not frost-tolerant orchid plants, so don’t expose them to temperatures below 35°F (2°C). Place Cymbidium indoors in a bright, cool area of your home, preferably in a south or east-facing window.
Like most orchids, Cymbidium benefits from high humidity. As such, use a humidifier or a humidity tray, but make sure that the plant doesn’t stand in water, else the roots
Cymbidiums thrive in a light, porous medium, capable of holding moisture while draining thoroughly upon watering. These orchids grow best when the root system is left undisturbed, so repot only when the medium has broken down. Repot in the spring season only after the plants finished blooming. Try to remove all dead roots from the plant without causing any damage to the living roots.
Since these plants have long thin leaves, they are prone to tiny, spider mites on the undersides. To get rid of these mites, spray with insecticidal 3 times a week, alternatively along with watering and fine spraying of water.
