    Jumping the gun by a day, but tomorrow is supposed to be pouring rain all day and much cloudier than today. Also, we had a nice and quiet Christmas Eve brunch instead of dinner, so now we are having a lazy afternoon. I decided to rotate the pot 180 degrees midway through the photo shoot, they are almost all open now, so it is safe. When they are unopened they alway orient themselves towards the light. I never mentioned how I grow them. The substrate is 100% Pinus radiata bark chips (from New Zealand), medium size, 1/2 to 1 inch in size. Watering is twice a week, every other time with diluted fertilizer. Occasionally a magnesium sulfate rinse. Every spring they go outside as soon as temperature is above freezing, and every fall they come inside just before temperature goes below freezing. Watering outside depends on the weather, according to the rain. They are in an unprotected spot with eastern exposure, more or less full sun good portion of the day.
    Next one coming up is a no ID giant green hybrid. Last photo is from a previous year. It is my husband’s favorite.
    Merry Christmas everyone! As much as it can be this year...

    Thanks for our Christmas bouquet, @Nik, and for thinking of us in the middle of your holiday.

    The rain melted all the snow, and today is very sunny and cold outside. But very warm inside. Two more final shots for this thread. I will start another one for one of the other Cymbidium plants.

    Good morning N, this has been a very welcome thread, it's certainly cheered everyone up seeing the progress and final blooms of this lovely plant. Thankyou.

    PS, hope you had a lovely Christmas.
