This is for those of you with space and warmth. And also for those of you who want to grow Cymbidiums but can't provide autumn chilling.

Ellen at Olympic Orchids has a lot of Grammatophyllum and Grammatocymbidium (Gramm. x Cym. = Grcym.) hybrids right now. Gramms. love being warm, sunny and wet. Grcyms. look a lot like Cyms. but don't need cooling in fall to flower.

She also has a lot of Cym. hybrids. Some are warm flowering and others aren't. The listings don't make this clear but you can look up ancestors on Orchidroots.

I bought a few, including Gramm. scriptum x speciosum.

Of course there are lots of other nice things, including lots of intergeneric Oncidiums, and Miltoniopsis. Ellen sells small seedlings or mericlones in 2" / 5cm pots, in very fresh sphagnum moss. For her Oncs., I put the entire undisturbed root ball directly into a semi-hydroponics pot with LECA.

Edit: A few are hiding in the Uncategorized section of the shop. You won't see them in the main listing of All Orchids.

Ordered a few from her in the past and would consider ordering more BUT I know that they are many years from blooming size and I am trying to stick with NBS or BS now. The ones I purchased last year haven't grown much so, just out of curiosity, how fast do the cymbidium x gram orchids generally grow?

They should grow faster than almost all other orchids. Warm to hot, never drying out, more fertilizer than most other orchids.

The Onc. hybrids I've bought as tiny mericlones reach flowering size in 2-3 years. Some of the little Oncs. are flowering size on arrival.

The Oncidium Gold Dust I got from Olympic last year arrived in spike and it finally bloomed this year.

You can also culture them as per standard Cymbidiums--I grow them *almost exactly the same as standards, with the exception of giving them a HOT, WET summer [ie leave them in the greenhouse instead of benching them outdoors and just water the heck out of them...]; mine throw spikes pretty much any time new bulbs mature, but bloom most heavily late autumn into winter [I've not pulled parentage on the Cyms used in their crosses, but I suspect it probably has something to do with it...]
Fair warning, just like Gramms, they get B-I-G; the largest I have is probably in a 3g pot and takes up about 3' of space in all directions [and is due for an even larger pot this spring...]
