Cymbidium Orchids: Seven Steps to Selecting and Propagating Them

Cymbidium orchids is a genus of 52 species of the orchid family. They are evergreen and typically bloom during winter for about 8 to 10 weeks.

They are available in many colors including white, cream, yellow, brown, pink, red and there is also a green cymbidium orchid. Many come with markings of other colors on blooms.

Because of its unusual color the green cymbidium orchid has been gaining popularity recently.

Selecting a good specimen:

Nicknamed the "boat orchid, there are seven important steps to take when selecting an orchid cymbidium.

  1. Buy from a reputable grower.
  2. Buy plants that are healthy; e.g. the leaves of the chosen plant are green, the roots have white tips, the roots are growing over the sides of the pot.
  3. Choose a plant that will do well in the temperatures in your home or around your home, if you should choose to keep your plant outside.
  4. These plants come in varieties that enjoy temperatures from 60 degrees Fahrenheit to 85 degrees. Buy mature plants. They'll be sturdier than seedlings.
  5. Look for cymbidium orchids that are in bloom (with buds and full blossoms), then you'll know what color the blooms will be when it's time for your plant to bloom again and will have a plant that blooms for its full duration.
  6. Don't buy a plant that is full of blooms but otherwise looks unhealthy.
  7. Don't buy a plant that's bone dry or sopping wet.

Propagating cymbidium orchids:

Cymbidium orchids are fairly large orchids that quickly can overwhelm a pot. Their size also makes them great candidates for propagating.

These orchids have pseudobulbs or swollen parts of the stem between two leaf nodes. Sometimes there's a "back bulb", or a pseudobulb that has been stripped of its leaves, is located behind the active pseudobulb and appears to be dead. Unless it feels soft and mushy or entirely dried out, it still probably has life and is just dormant.

The easiest way to propagate an orchid cymbidium is to pull off a back bulb or one of the several pseudobulbs that might be present and to plant it in some potting medium.

These back bulbs often have eyes that are dormant and may actually take a few years to flower. So propagation of cymbidium orchids can be a process that can take a lot of patience.

To propagate orchids cymbidium:

  1. Remove a group of three or more pseudobulbs or back bulbs or divide the entire plant.
  2. Be sure the plant is done flowering and then remove it from its pot.
  3. Either gently, but firmly pull the plant apart or divide it with a sharp, sterilized knife. Make sure that each new plant has at least three pseudobulbs.
  4. Throw away dead leaves or soft and mushy or dried out bulbs.
  5. Put some medium mixture (like fir bark with charcoal and perlite) in a pot that will allow about two year's worth of growth.
  6. Place the new plant on top of the medium mixture with the newest growth points toward the center of the pot. Fill the pot with medium mixture to cover only the root mass, not the bulbs.
  7. Water well and keep them someplace shady. You should water them again a week or two later.

It will take about ten weeks for the pseudobulbs to root. A back bulb may take six to nine months for an eye to begin to grow and can take another three to five years for it to produce a flower spike and to bloom.

In either case your patience will pay off beautifully with many more gorgeous cymbidiums to enjoy for years.

cymbidium orchid?

..i have a small pots of them..it is safe to transplant them now/?.

Transplant only when the pseudobulbs crowd the pot and after the blooms are finished for the season. When dividing the plants, keep a minimum of three healthy pseudobulbs per division. The selected bulbs should be solid and firm in texture with some roots attached. Place the divisions in fresh potting soil in a small pot that allows only 2-3 inches between the bulbs and the side of the pot, as they prefer to be a bit crowded. The preferred soil mix is 2 parts composted bark, 2 parts peat moss, and 1 part sand. Perfect drainage is a must. It’s best not to use a saucer under your cymbidium orchids so the pot doesn’t sit in excess water. If you must use a saucer, place a layer of gravel under the pot to keep it up out of standing water.
Check the site I gave in resources , has good info on them and I have pasted from the same place.
