    I recieved this is a trade almost 5 years ago. This is the first time the division has bloomed for me. I am so excited that I am posting it early. I will post updates as the flowers open.

    Also, this is the first time I have bloomed a standard cymbidium or any species. Yay! Now we can part ways. It is another one that is too big for my space. At least too big to grow to it's full potential.

    Such a great flower! Even in my greenhouse it is a space hog.

    Beautiful - I love some of the species cymbidiums but too big for me too

    Nice! Are you growing it in a bucket?

    Yes. It is in a Sherwin William bucket, which had never been used. It has been there for almost 5 year. I am very delinquent on the repotting for this one. But I will clean it up and repot in the spring

    Hi Darlene, I have a monster tracyananum as well. I keep it on the cold side of the greenhouse (36 F nights) so it doesn’t have a lot of competition for space until Spring comes...then it will go outside.
