365 days of orchids – day 137 – Cymbidium findlaysonianum
This is a warm growing Cymbidium species from South East Asia, Malaysia and the Philippines. It is a large robust plant with thick leaves and it produces long spikes around a metre long with many flowers. The flowers spikes are strongly pendulous which means the flowers are well clear of the leaves and a mature plant like ours with three spikes is quite a sight and well worth of Best Cymbidium in Show (see photo below)
We grow the species hanging high in Warm Asia.
