Just arrived, beautiful new tropical Cymbidiums. These heat-tolerant Cymbidiums (HTC’s) are easy to grow and low maintenance. Their growing can be comparable to growing Dendrobium hybrids, so they can be a great plant for the amateur gardener. HTC’s can generally stand the impact of rainfall; therefore they don’t require a rainproof roof, just a covering of shadecloth.
As with most Cymbidiums they do enjoy good ventilation and moderate humidity, so keep them out of high humidity greenhouses and ensure they are not grown under hanging baskets. Although they don’t enjoy high humidity they still like to have their root ball kept moist, not wet, so ensure they are grown in a medium that is well drained but retains some moisture.
