Cymbidium Castanha


By Siris

Cymbidium Castanha (Cymbidium)

Very unusual colour, fairly small blooms, but 3 flower spikes. For a cool conservatory.

This is lovely ,I haven't had a flower on mine since we moved here ,maybe I've ignored it to much , not enough TLC ...

I do feed mine with either 'food to bloom' or 'food to grow' depending on season.

I've rescued mine from the greenhouse Sue and have given it a good soak , I'll go and give it a feed ,fingers crossed we might get a bloom ...

Hope it's not too late for them, Amy. This is only the second time the one above has flowered, I've still 2 more different Cymbidiumfrom the same source that have never flowered yet.
