My own Cymbidium.
Last year I was so excited because my orchid gave its first spikes with flowers.
This year it gave me two spikes again.
5 flowers on each one.
Cymbidium /sɪmˈbɪdiəm/, or boat orchids, is a genus of 52 evergreen species in the orchid family Orchidaceae. One of its first descriptions come from Olof Swartz in 1799. The name is derived from the Greek word kumbos, meaning ‘hole, cavity’. It refers to the form of the base of the lip. The genus is abbreviated Cym in horticultural trade.
