NOID - Cymbidium Orchids

Here our cymbidium flowering season nearly finished, I still have a few late blooming varieties that are yet to put up a show, but I thought I'll feature a few beautiful cymbidiums that been with me for quite a few years, yet I have no idea of their names or origins.

Some were given to me by friends when they stopped flowering for them, some were rescued by me from old gardens being "redeveloped", others were picked up by me from the back benches of garden nurseries discarded, dried up and shriveled, not suitable for quick sale.
All of these plants gone through my "intensive orchid care unit" and with a bit of attention and patience  started flowering again and been rewarding me with their flamboyant blooms year after year. From my experience it does not take a lot to revive neglected plant - just quick checking of the root system, new fresh compost, shady situation in the garden and plenty of watering with occasional feed. And a bit of time to let the orchid to recover properly - after that just enjoyment and appreciation of these special plants.

Hello Klara, looks like you've not been posting more often, thanks for the visit I am reminded you're here again. You are really very good in understanding your orchids, as your care and patience paid well. I am not a stay-at-home gardener so not able to care for my plants well. They are very independent!

Thank you very much to all for your comments, I am glad you like these cymbidiums and I am happy that they recovered enough to show off their individual beauty. It's great for me to be surprised, since until they flower I have no idea , I still have no idea of their names or origin, yet they become good friends rewarding with masses of special blooms and I figured the world can do with more beautiful flowers.
