Cymbidium bicolor var obtusum in bloom from my collection
Don't you think that species are often more... elegant than hybrids?
Very nice. Do you think it is similar to the one like in my avatar?
I have four of them. But, only one produced flowers so far. I wonder what should to do to stimulate them flowering.
One of mine is bearing seedpots currently
Sorry for the delayed response. Indeed, i fully agree with you, there is no second though about it, species are natural and nature's creation is fantastic, it is only man improved over what was there in nature.
Your appears to be Cymbidium bicolor sub species bicolor i think. These Cymbidiums like more light and i do not know what light levels you are giving,
Do you think so?
Mine has some seedpods currently. Still unripe.
I place it outside as I don't grow in a greenhouse, it gets sunlight from morning till noon. I noticed this Cymbidium loves water. It withered quickly after a few days without being watered.
I see you have mounted the cymbidium?, we grow that in pots with a well drained media and water regularly. Except few of them may need to dry before rewatering. In the location where I live, we cannot grow any cool growing ones and we can only go for species like Cymb. aloifolium, Cymb. atropurpureum, Cymb bicolor, Cymb lowianum, Cymb giganteum and other HTC.
I have four of them. The biggest clump planted on a terracota pot, two mounted on a fern slab and a piece of coffee tree slab, the last one attached on a Codiaeum variegatum. During rainy season like now, I don't need to water them. But on dry season I should keep them watered every day.
