Key Lime Cascading Cymbidium
Default Key Lime Cascading Cymbidium

Hello all, happy new year! I purchased this enchanting cymbidium a few days ago from Brookside Orchids in California. The orchid nursery folks told me that they are unable to find the ID for this particular cascading cymbidium. As you can see in the photographs, she has this lovely key lime shade of green. There’s variegation on the petals and sepals, particularly the tips. There is variegation on the leaves, as well. If you have a similar cymbidium or might know, please chime in. Thanks!

I have a couple of Cyms that look similar, that are different hybrids. So I don't think that you will be able to get a definite ID, there are several that look similar. Just enjoy.

I have a Cym. Tommy 'Sweet Lime' that is somewhat similar, but sepals/petals are broader, shorter. Also, mine lacks any variegation or picotee.


Mine is developing 3 spikes that should bloom within the next couple of months (if not eaten by the squirrels).

Another reason to hate squirrels. Besides eating your Christmas lights into 1' sections and burying the bulbs in your flower bed. (Kinda sorry about hijacking your thread).

I was on Orchids.org looking at some registered Cymbidiums, along with several sites and photo searches. It appears that somewhere along the line, a Cymbidium floribundum was involved, as the column and lip look similar in shape, and also the trailing habit and the spacing of the flowers are similar. The variegated leaves could link this orchid also to the Cymbidum sinense.

Crossing fingers for you! Have you thought about building an enclosure?

Re: Enclosure, weighing cost vs. one plant, probably not worth it. I'll just hope for the best.
