Warm Growing Cymbidiums?
Talking Warm Growing Cymbidiums?

I'm looking for some warm growing hybrid cymbidiums. There are some from Hawaiian growers, but they're to pricey for the size of the plant. It would be nice if I could find some in South Florida, but also willing to order online. The bigger flower the better.
Thanks

There was just a post on this a few days ago. Use the search function, it should pop right up.

If you can find one I highly recommend C. Chen's Ruby 'Golden Tiger'. I haven't been able to bloom any of the Cymbidium that require chill, but this one is a reliable bloomer for me:

Just read the posting under the link. Found one detail, that I know to be glaringly wrong.

Cym dayanum is listed as warm growing. In nature, this plant grows from 600' to 6,000' elevations, so it will tolerate virtually any temperature you care to give it.

Other than that, I agree that there are no clear distinctions. In my mind, there is a world of a difference between 'warm growing' and 'warmth tolerant'. I apply the latter to those hybrids, which readily bud up in HI, and which should be OK for growers in FL.

True!! They might need to change the words to describe the various sorts. Such as:
"warm flowering" WF,
"warm or cold flowering" WCF
"cold flowering" CF

The above being 'general' behaviour ...... in general (not meaning that a CF orchid has zero chance of flowering in warm condition).

Too darn cold too fast! By the time autumn chill hits, we start getting nights well below freezing and I have to bring them in.

And it is fragrant, too. And may even produce a second set of spikes a month or two after the first. I love this one - and I live in an area where all Cyms do fine, this one is still special.

Oh geeez. I see what you mean now subrosa!

Although very nice to hear that you're still growing those other cyms. Still good chances to get flowers in the future for sure!
