It has been a frustration for many years, that cascading (or pendulous) Cymbidium plants are hard to find, so I decided to produce my own.

Flowers were pollinated in February 2019 and pods were sent to the lab in Sept.
Flasks came back the first week of Nov 2020.
After 6-7 months in community flats, I potted them up into individual pots (2.1/2"), and last spring into 4" or gallon pots, depending upon size.

I have 10-12 plants in bud now, and just saw the first flower open yesterday (26-27 months out of flask):

Cym. ([devonianum x Blue Nose] x Hazel Fay)

Significantly better than the (devonianum x Blue Nose) parent, but not as cascading as I had hoped for. Perhaps this will improve as more flowers open.

I love my pendulous Dorothy Stockstill and thought about selfing it until I learned that it was 3N. Too bad!
