Cymbidium Orchids

I decided that my first post should describe my favorite Orchid, the Cymbidium. These orchids are cooler growing and come in a fantastic range of colors. They have large gorgeous flowers which can last for months. Cymbidiums need lots of filtered sunlight, and prefer a free draining medium. They can be expensive, but I have found that Trader Joes offers them for $25 ever once in a while. For more information please visit the Cymbidium Society of America.



My Inaugural Post

The picuture above is of the classic white phalenopsis orchid, this is the Orchid that started my passion.

Orchids are one of my great loves. They are right up there with dark chocolate and music. I started this blog so that I could share them with others. I am going to try and create one post per day which showcases a particular orchid. They will be organized at the bottom by category if you have a favorite type. Thanks, and enjoy!
