Orchids Hybrid (Cymbidium Golden Elf)

Cymbidiums are one of the oldest of domesticated orchids. They have been grown in Southeast Asia and Japan for hundreds of years where the breeding and display of orchids is an art in its own. After the Phalaenopsis, they are the most commonly sold orchids for decorative display in the home.
In nature the species mostly grow as epiphytes (in trees) or as terrestrials (in the ground), but are cultivated primarily in pots as a semi-terrestrial with a medium size or mixed media (half bark and half terrestrial orchid mix). They require more watering than many other orchids except during the winter months. The most important factor for Cymbidiums is the night temperature, especially during the summer months. They prefer temperatures in the 60s, or 15 degrees C, to grow well. The miniatures will tolerate warmer night temperatures better.
