So, all I really wanted was Cymbidium Keep Rolling By 'Orange 9', but all I could find were tiny seedling size plants, and I found one on Etsy for 60 dollars. I'm hesitant to order plants from Etsy anyway, and 60 is just absurd.

Then, I found it at The Orchid People of Hawaii for 25. The only problem there is that you have to buy 5 plants. They won't sell fewer than 5 plants at a time. Long story short, I eventually talked myself into doing it, because they had more than 5 that I would be happy to have, so finding 5 that I wanted was easy.

The plants got here today and they are magnificent. Every one of them is in spike, and they are all so healthy, almost bursting out of their 5 inch pots (I think I'll move them to 1 gallon pots once they are done blooming). I'm very happy with them, and I would recommend The Orchid People to anyone, if you are willing to buy at least 5.

I can't believe I've never successfully bloomed a cymbidium, and I just bought 5 of them lolololololol. But these are clones, not seedlings, so they are proven hot weather summer bloomers, so i should do better with these than with the seedlings I kept for 5 years until they were so heavy I could barely pick them up, and never got a single bloom.

And thank you! I'm thrilled with them. I'll post bloom pics of course when the flowers open.

I do have a question about the best way to handle them now that I have them. I have a great east window that gets the strong morning all day until the sun moves over the top of the house. I also have my backyard setup where they get filtered light all day (my Catts develop a nice almost yellow but still green color to them, and purple on the new growths, and they bloom, so I think it gets quite a bit of light out there).

It is my understanding that sudden changes in culture can cause Cymbidium buds to blast. What do you guys think is the best place for me to keep these while the buds develop? Keep in mind outside it is in the 90s every day, sometimes approaching 100, with nightly lows in the 70s, or often approaching 80.

Are the buds safer developing inside my house at my good east window, or should I just put them outside with the rest of my sun loving plants? The main thing that worries me about putting them outside is the heat. Would that much heat blast the buds?

I think I'm going to leave them inside while the buds develop. They have a nice window where they get half a day of direct sun, and the temperature is pleasant in the 70s, and they should do fine. I'm afraid if I stick them outside when it's 95 degrees, that might shock them and the buds might blast. I know they can handle that kind of heat if they are acclimated to it, and if they weren't all in spike, they'd go outside, but since the tender buds are developing, I'm going to be a little gentle with them. And also, I'm the only one who ever goes in this room, so that allows me to delay having to tell my family that I bought 5 more plants, 5 big Cymbidiums, all at once after I just got another box full of orchids last week hahahahaha.

I don't recall the exact situation, but I think SVO had some kind of sale or something? Because somehow I ended up with a box of 10 miniature SVO Cattleyas last week.

And as Roberta suggested, I selected ones that had Peter Pan in their background, or ones that have a large percentage of ensifolium, aloifolium, and lowianum. All 5 of them are composed of at least 50%, if not more, of warm growing species. From the pictures, they look like most of them have classic, round Cymbidium shape (not as round as the standards, but not spidery with thin petals and sepals either), so if they work out, I will be thrilled. I might even buy 5 more.

Beautiful. I've had their website open for some time but, I have space constraints. Eventually, these may become big plants. I don't have the natural light for them and Indiana's power is not cheap. Keep us posted.

OMG that's funny, I had their website open in a tab on my browser for weeks before I finally broke down and bought the plants. Space is a problem for me too. It's going to be tight this fall with those plants when everybody comes inside. They are small as far as Cymbidiums go, but even the "miniature" Cymbidiums are pretty big. They're too tall to put under my light setup. I have a really good west facing window tho where I keep a lot of plants in the winter. I think I'm going to have to set another artificial light grow area (I'm gonna try LEDs this time) and move most of the plants that usually go in that west window and put them under lights so that i can put the Cymbidiums in the window. Of course if I did that, that's a really big window, so I'd have room at that window for 5 more Cymbidiums hahahahahaha.

You're not a confirmed orchid grower until you start getting rid of furniture for more space.
