This is my first crack at a cymbidium....got this species from a local grower here in Florida. It lives on my back screened-in lanai. Super happy it bloomed for me....it has probably 40 plus flowers on the spike...I am trying some more in the very near future!! Thanks to CymLadye for the recommendations

This was my undergraduate project for my 3rd year botany BSc. I was a lazy bum and picked the Cymbidium aloifolium growing outside on a big banyan tree on the University grounds (this was when I was in Sri Lanka). The plant I studied was/is (it's still there 15 years later) a beast. It's some 5 feet in diameter and has at least 10 flower spikes at a given time. There are daughter plants all over the place. Literally growing out of walls. I started appreciating it more after I started studying it. Give it light and water and it will take off. You'd be hard pressed to kill it.

It takes full Arizona summer sun through a cheap old glass window with no problem. That kind of sun could burn many cactus. It didn't turn a hair at 114 F / 46C outdoors in the shade. I'm going to see how much sun it can take outside.
