Cymbidium atropurpureum

A Malaysian Cymbidium
Unlike to common lowland Cymbidium finlaysonianum, this species features heavy red and maroon colors and the flowers are somewhat smaller at sea level. This is from Gua Musang, Kelantan. The plant there have better showing with larger flowers and longer inflorescence stalk. We can conclude that it maybe due to the cooler weather there as compared with Klang's badly poluted air for the last 2 months.
Also shot a HD Video here.

Also to note:- We lost numerous species here in our home in Klang due to the heat and pollution.
