Cymbidium Orchid

Barbara Messer

Unlike some things, 2021 has definitely been the best year for my cymbidium orchid.  Mainly because it hasn’t been damaged by kids, gardeners or eaten by bugs.

It’s had an adventurous life of around 15 years.  I must confess though, that it’s getting a little more attention and feeding now that I’m not working. It’s the only orchid that I have now.  Sadly another brownish one that I had did not survive my lack of attention.


This glorious pink cymbidium usually flowers each year in August and blooms until I pick a spike, the bugs get it or an accident befalls it.

Having this in my garden certainly puts a smile on my face.
