Cymbidium First Dance Tethys ‘Black Magic’ x Last Tango ‘Geyserland’

When a Cymbidium has truly become over-crowded in its pot, you know that it needs to be divided, but how do you do this?  Do you just hack into it with an axe or is there a definitive way to divide; and subsequently conquer. Either way, you end up having a series of off-spring or back-bulbs from your original plant. Your next step is to know how to keep them alive. This is known as back-bulb propagation.

  • Our guest speaker in August will be Chris Scerri, who will be presenting on his recent experience at propagating cymbidiums from back-bulbs.

This session is suitable for all orchid lovers and growers, from beginners through to experienced growers.
