Default New no ID Cymbidium

I saw some Cymbidiums for sale at a garden centre a few weeks ago but didnít buy then as we had a ten-day break coming up. We went again today and I found one left at a reduced price. One spike is dried out, the secondís flowers have all gone over but most of the flowers on the third spike are still open. Thereís a fourth spike thatís all buds but it doesnít look happy and I doubt that it will do well.

The compost was absolutely bone dry.

On the bright side, it has three mature pseudobulbs and four new growths of some sort. One is definitely a new pseudobulb but the others are barely poking through the surface of the compost so weíll see how they develop.

I reckon the flowers are lovely and Iím already looking forward to seeing it in its full glory next year.
