    The whole plant is 6" tall and totally charming even without flowers. The flowers are about 1.5" wide and this particular clone has a "banana oil" fragrance.

    Great species. Another Cymbidium which I wish to grow when will have enough space.

    A stunning species. I had one once, but it died. It kept trying to climb out of the pot I had it in

    Calvin, this is a very widespread species and there is variety in size, flower color and habit. Some of the clones I have do climb no matter what I do, others never do.
