GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Cymbidium, commonly known as boat orchids, is a genus of evergreen flowering plants in the orchid family Orchidaceae.
  • Orchids in this genus are epiphytic, lithophytic, terrestrial, or rarely leafless saprophytic herbs usually with pseudobulbs.
  • These are great centerpieces for this festive season!
  • Imported from Japan.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Most cymbidium potting mixes contain larger pieces of organic material, such as fir bark or redwood bark.
  • This keeps the mix open and well-draining and gives spaces for roots to grow into.
  • Another necessary component is finer water-absorbing organic matter such as peat moss or sphagnum.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • When the Cymbidium is in active growth, you will want to fertilize regularly.
  • An orchid fertilizer solution of (20-20-20) is recommended.
  • During the winter months, applying fertilizer once a month is sufficient.
  • It is important to remember to never add fertilizer to an orchid that is dry because it can cause severe damage to the roots and leaves.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Cymbidiums need a medium to bright light intensity in order to thrive and do best with as much light as possible.
  • If your Cymbidium orchid is receiving the optimal amount of light the leaves will be a yellow-green color.
  • Too much light will cause the leaves to become yellow, and too little light will cause the leaves to become a very dark green color.
  • The best place to grow your Cymbidium orchid indoors is on an east-facing windowsill, although a shaded south-facing window will also work.
  • If you choose to grow your orchid outside it is important that you give your Cymbidium shelter from the direct sun although not in a completely shaded area.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • A Cymbidium orchid should be watered in the morning using tepid water.
  • This will give the orchid adequate time to dry before the lower night temperature sets in.
  • While the orchid is in active growth, it is recommended that you keep the orchid in slightly damp conditions but never let the medium become soggy.
  •  You will want to water more frequently during the warmer months, at least once a week, and less frequently in the cooler months.
  • Once the pseudobulbs have finished growing, in the late summer, you can reduce your watering schedule although it is important to not let the orchid dry out completely.
