Cymbidium Orchid - On the Prowl " Glamour Puss"



This beautiful cymbidium orchid currently in bloom - it's called On the Prowl " Glamour Puss" - another beautiful addition to my cymbidium orchids collection.

I purchased "Glamour Puss" seedling some time ago and been waiting for a while to see it's flowers and this year it's first flowering season. It's very nice cymbidium with very round, large blooms and nice color lip and petals, with many markings splashed on the petals. It would probably need couple of more flowering seasons and a bit of maturity to reveal it's beauty in full, still there is a promise here of something special and unusual. As the flowers maturing, they seems to take this luminous quality, very delicate, yet showy.

We are near the end of cymbidium flowering season, a few of my late flowering cymbidiums have flower spikes, ready to flower and to finish this wonderful flowering season. As usual, it's anticipation to see other orchid species and to welcome new one's in my ever expanding collection.

This orchid is worthy of its name. That Yellow Fever in the photo to the right is gorgeous too.

Hi Klara, all your Cymbidium are glamorous. I thought you've not been posting for a while though, as your site is prominently displayed on my side bar. I have a very big clump of our native Cymbidium but most of it died during the last long dry season. It was attached to a Leucaena tree stump which already merged with lanzones. Both the lanzones and the clump dried totally, but now a few plants were saved trying to grow again. Ours is the long drooping spikes but with long internodes. Maybe i should post its photo one of these days.

It's hard to think you have more yet to find!

Thank you for following Pictures Just Pictures.

I’ve now used all the allotted space for photos there and have started a new blog so I can carry on. It’s called

I’ve given it a different look but its purpose is unchanged - a photo a day.
