First Cymbidium aloifolium Bloom!

This plant has steadily been putting out new growth and we finally tricked this Cymbidium aloifolium in to bloom. Living in S.FL we do not have the cold weather to trigger the spikes on most Cymbidiums, so you have to be a little creative. I began watering it with ice water and like magic the spike appeared.

  1. I never buy cymbidiums for this reason. Ice water. What a great idea.
