Cymbidium finlaysonianum

Another Cymbidium

This the commonest Cymbidium usually found growing at lowlands especially on old durian trees. Its pendulous flowers is very striking to look at.

My posting below (1st. August 2009) is another Cymbidium called C. atropurpureum which is less common and found at higher elevations.

This C. finlaysonianum featured here, usually flowers twice a year.

Geodorum citrinum

At last!

Obtained a cluster of leafless bulb from a road-side slope after a small landslide, we grew this species after dividing into pots.

The plant grew profusely with many leaves but did not flower at all. That was many cycles for the last nine years.

Last week, one of the pot flowered. Only then we can safely describe and name this species.

We shot an HD Video of the Geodorum citrinum here.
