Cymbidium Orchid

Cymbidium (sym-BID-ee-um) orchids are often used in cut flower displays as well as in corsages. Cymbidium orchids are often called “boat orchids” and the flowers are usually large in size and display a patterned lip. The flowers can last anywhere from 8-10 weeks and they come in almost all colors except blue. Cymbidium /sɪmˈbɪdiəm/, or boat orchid, is a genus of 52 evergreen species in the orchid family Orchidaceae. The new Latin genus name is derived from the Latin cymba meaning boat. Its first known use was in 1815. Cymbidium spikes bloom only one time, so once the blooms have dropped you will not be able to encourage a rebloom from the spike as you can with other types of orchids. They typically bloom in the early spring although sometimes you can see flowers beginning to bloom in October or bloom all the way until June. Cymbidium orchids are popular due to their ability to thrive in cooler, drier conditions. If you live in an area with mild temperatures and no frost, you may be able to successfully grow Cymbidium orchids outside.

HYBRID ORCHIDS ARE PRODUCTS OF SEXUAL REPRODUCTION, AND THEREFORE CHARACTERISTICS SUCH AS COLOR, SHAPE, SIZE, ETC ARE NOT NECESSARILY CONSISTENT WITH WHAT IS PICTURED.
