Orchids are truly beautiful plants to grow and the Cymbidiums are the most widely cultivated of all the orchid types. They are ideal for pots and grow easily in semi shade. As with many other plants they are easy to grow if they are in the right spot.
They like to be kept moist but not wet. I pour on a very weak solution of worm tea or sea weed every now and then during the growing season. They seem to like that. But mostly I leave them alone and every year, around now they give me a wonderful surprise with their absolutely gorgeous flower stems. Flowers like these are what gardening is all about.
