Love the colour on this one, Amy.

I am envious as my pink cymbidiums have not bloomed for several years. Love this yellow one even more. Saved to my favorites.

Thank you all , it was given to me by a lady who sadly has since passed , Sue I'd love your advice on splitting and repotting it as it's quite pot bound ..

That is really nice Amy. Is this the orchid used to make corsages? I see them a lot at weddings.

Amy, I am no expert on Orchids. Cymbidium are cool temperature Orchids. I put mine outside in the summer under the carport, ie somewhere shady .I think they are better not being over potted. Repot with Orchid compost.
Hope that's of some help.

Thanks for that Sue this has been in the garden room which doesn't have any heat but on a sunny day the temperature soon zooms up to 80 ' plus I'll take your advice and put it somewhere cooler and then outside when the weather improves , Thats a great help thanks ..

That's beautiful Amy, it does look exotic and you've looked after it very well, with so many flowers. It looks so fresh with the droplets of water or dewdrops down the stems too. x
