For a luxury plant that keeps on giving look no further than this stunning three stemmed Cymbidium Orchid.
Cymbidium Orchids are much more cold-tolerant than many common species of orchids. They feature sprays of large blooms in the dead of winter on flower spikes that can last for around one to three months. Plus, their long, thin leaves also add an attractive touch to the plant. For best results, start with a store-bought plant and wait until after it's done flowering in the spring to repot it (or put it in the ground). A new seedling can take several years before it flowers.
During the growing season, cymbidium orchids appreciate dappled sunlight. If your orchids are outdoors, make sure they are not in direct sunlight, as this can cause burning on the plant. A few hours of morning sunlight paired with shady afternoons should be perfect.
If you are growing your orchids indoors, a southeast- or east-facing window is ideal. Under the proper light conditions, the leaves should appear apple green as opposed to dark green. A dark green plant is likely not receiving enough sunlight to provoke a good bloom.
