    Hi!

    I have three more Cymbidiums in my collection that are currently in bloom. I'd like to share them with you. First, I have a seedling that I purchased from Casa de las Orchideas in Solana Beach, CA. This one is Cym. Greenezelle 'Green Gold' x Cym. Lemon Butter 'Solana Jade'. The pollen parent is green in spite of what you'd think from the hybrid name. I couldn't find a registration for this cross.

    Next, I have a mericlone that I purchased two years ago in a four-inch pot. This is its first bloom for me. It's Cym. Mighty Remus 'Vintage'.

    Last, I have a surprise. I was watering my plants yesterday when I noticed that this one had a flower spike on the back side facing towards the fence. This is another seedling from Casa de las Orchideas. It is Cym. Rum Runner 'Tikitere' HHC/AOS x Cym Happy Hooker 'Ruby' AD/CSA. This one is registered as Cym. Bootlegger's Babe. My plant isn't gonna win any awards, but I'm very pleased with it. I'm starting to love the pendulous cymbidiums.

    My camera didn't quite capture the wonderful color of this flower. It's very vibrant in person. :)
