Product Description

These plants produce stunning flowers, and lots of them. And they are super easy to grow. Mature plants put out lots of large, dark, dark red flowers, with a lip so dark it is almost black. The breeding is Cymbidium Mimi x Cymbidium Tethys. Some of the award winners have had 75 or more flowers at once. This is a seedling, about 3 years away from first flowers. But a mature plant in bloom would cost $35 to $50 or more, so be patient, grow it up and voila! These are slightly larger than the plant pictured as they have grown some. Grow these in moderately bright indirect light. Keep moist. Fertilize twice a month, rather weakly. You pretty much can't go wrong. These seedlings are freshly repotted in 3.5 inch pots. The pictures show the kind of flowers to expect, and the size of the plants. We'll pick out a nice one for you and ship in the pot. We always ship the largest. You can buy with confidence. We guarantee customer satisfaction upon delivery.

A extremly healthy plant that has grown dramatically since its arrival. It should be an exceptional plant for blooming if it casts blooms as readily as it grows vegatatively. I have high expectations for this one!

While I still need to re-plant this, it is rally thriving at my house after months. It's in great condition-- I was very worried about it during shipping, but it arrived in perfect condition.
