What kind of plant is this? Got it at an estate sale.




That's a Cymbidium orchid, Jakirincon. Give it lots of indirect light, and maybe some filtered morning sun. Allow the top 1/2 inch of potting compost to dry between soakings. Feed it over the summer with a 30-10-10 formula to encourage healthy growth, and switch that for a 6-20-20 formula around Halloween to encourage flower bud formation. If all goes well, in late winter to early spring, it should send up spikes of "corsage orchids" in shades and patterns of white, yellow, peach, pink or crimson.
