I currently have just one Cymbidium, a Tommy 'Sweet Lime' gifted to me by Paul B, who used to be on Orchidboard.

So far this winter, I've kept it outdoors except on nights when temperatures fell into the 20s F; then I moved the plant into the garage (no door or heat). I brought it indoors when the pendant spikes seemed far enough along. It produced three spikes, total of 60 buds (one spike is hiding on the left side of the plant).

Closer look at the flowers:

I'll give a close-up a try. Best camera I have is a phone though.
