Plant details

Cymbidiums are one of the easiest orchids to grow. This pale flowered variety blooms for weeks on end, especially when it is grown in a cool room. Plants need good light but prefer not to be in direct sunlight. During the growing season, water regularly and feed every three weeks. In winter, water sparingly. Plants will benefit from being placed outisde for a while during the warm summer months. Bring into the greenhouse again well before the first frosts.
