Cymbidium (hybrid cymbidium orchidaceae) is a variety of indoor orchids native to the Asian mountains. Robust plant, this orchid with long, ribbon-like leaves offers opulent flower spikes during flowering, each carrying 6 to 12 flowers in contrasting shimmering colors, usually speckled: white, pink, brown, red, brown, green, yellow, etc. It flowers in winter and generally until May. It includes around sixty species and many hybrids.

Size of the cymbidium orchid

Cymbidium exists in two sizes: from 45 to 60cm for miniature cymbidiums, between 1m and 1.20m for classic cymbidiums. Each flower of this orchid can have a diameter of 5 to 10cm.

Culture and maintenance of cymbidium

Easy to grow, the cymbidium orchid likes to grow at an average temperature of 15 to 20 ° in front of a window exposed to light and needs good ventilation. It supports the hot weather and can enjoy the garden from April to October in a semi-shaded place. It is necessary to fertilize as often as possible, and this, until the appearance of the flower stalks.

Diseases of the cymbidium orchid

Cymbidium can be a victim of mealybugs when exposed in the garden.

Watering the cymbidium orchid

The cymbidium plant needs a lot of hard water. During the flowering period, the cymbidium should be watered 1 to 2 times a week. At the end of flowering, the cymbidium must be watered to keep the compost always moist. On sunny days, the leaves should also be sprayed.

Potting the cymbidium orchid

Potting is done every two to three years after flowering. However, potting should be avoided in summer and fall. This is to remove dry leaves and dead roots. Repotting also makes it possible to multiply the plant, by preserving in each part three pseudo-bulbs.
