Due to the very cold and prolonged winter in Victoria, many Cymbidium orchids were late to flower, relying on the warmth and sunlight to help them bloom.
But, did you know that Cymbidiums are the easiest of all orchids to grow and they are the most widely grown orchid. Most species come from Asia and their range extends from India and Japan down to Australia which has three species. The majority grow at high altitudes whee warm humid days and cool nights are common in Summer with cool, dry conditions during Winter. There are over 50 species and thousands of hybrids available.
Learn more about these orchids and their culture on our Cymbidium Orchid Culture page.
