Default I Lost the Name of a Particular Cym Vendor

Hello! I had read a post on OB that had a link to a phenomenal cymbidium supplier and I thought I had bookmarked them but it turns out that I did not. Oops!

Now I can not remember their name! I know they were USA based and had a staggering number of cym varieties. Can you think of anyone who might fit that description?

In particular I would really love to get a reasonably priced ($25-$40 USD) specimen of Cymbidium Kiwi Midnight 'Geyserland'.

Can you help me?

Could it be this vendor?

Cymbidium at Santa Barbara Orchid Estate

Though they don't list the one your looking for, perhaps they might know where you could acquire one?

Yes! I think that might be the vendor!

Thanks!

Hundreds of vendors all over the world sell the plant you are looking for. It has been mericloned in the millions. Do not pay more than $25 to $35 US for a blooming size division, as it is simply not worth the hype, in many people's opinion. The color fades and the form goes to pot shortly after opening.

I did not check to see where you are located but I know Hatfield Orchids in Ventura, Ca has divisions if SBOE does not.

Hmmm...interesting. Yeah the mere mention of the word "black" in the orchid world seems to raise the prices 200%. lol!

I had bought one off a gal on ebay for $16 but it was a unhealthy specimen and quickly died.

Cym, what are some of your favorite Cymbidiums? I am just now starting to really get into this genus.

In particular I am looking for a nice red and a nice pale pink.

Before you go hog wild on Cyms, be sure you have the conditions to be successful with them, primarily how you plan to deal with the freezing temps.

An excellent source of high quality plants and one which will ship, aside from SBOE, is Casa de las Orquideas in Solana Beach, Ca. Visit their website and I think you will find some awesome reds which may meet your criteria.

Oh, I have plenty of space indoors to overwinter them.
The 2 I have did very well this past year. I know they need a cool spell to flower, so I keep them outside a little later than my other orchids.

In that case, I reiterate my recommendation to check out the Casa web site. Although they have many seedlings of quality, they also have mericlones and photos of them so you are assured of exactly what your plant(s) will look like.

In regard to my favorites, since I grow exclusively for the show bench and displays, these plants generally are not the first choice with the novice grower. I do believe in diversity in a collection, so I also have some primary hybrids/antique types to round out the collection of species and show bench plants.

Loren Batchman, the originator of Casa de las Orquideas in California, hybridized for high color and for the unusual in spots, stripes and pelorics. Since his passing two years ago, his son and daughters have carried on in the same tradition.
