s are not difficult to grow if you provide the requirements that they need. They love lots of bright sunshine and plenty of water while they are growing. You may, however, want to place them in a shaded area while they are in bloom because the sun will fade the pretty blossoms.
In the Fall they need a temperature of around 50 to 55 o
F (10 - 12 o
C) during the night to initiate the flower spikes. They like daytime temperatures as high as 85 o
F (30 o
C). Miniature Cymbidium
s prefer temperatures about 10 o
F (2 o
C) warmer than the standard Cymbidiums
You should fertilize them until they are through blooming. When new growth appears, fertilize with a bloom-booster fertilizer. Cymbidium
s do very well in a medium of fine orchid bark
with a little humus or course peat
mixed in it.
