Care tip: These plants are pretty forgiving - they just get on with it! Provide them with a weekly watering, a monthly feed and bright, indirect light and they will reward you with bright blooms year on year. Now that it’s autumn, move your plants nearer to a north-facing window, start feeding your plants less, or even stop completely, as we exit the growing season. Start misting, grouping plants together, or switching on the humidifier [in areas where] the air is getting drier and be very careful of overwatering.
3. Rhoda Kruger of Garden Bleu: The Cymbidium Orchid
Beside their spectacular flowers, their appeal lies in how exceptionally easy Cymbidiums are to keep. One could almost say that they “thrive on neglect”, with even the most uncared-for plant still having the chance to astound with its blooms.
