This months orchid in the picture: Cymbidium bicolor
This Cymbidium species has succulent fleshy leaves with pendant flower spikes on which 5 to 25 flowers appear. They spread a fruity perfume and last 4 to 5 weeks. Cymbidium aloifolium is closely related but differs in having a lateral ribbed and rounded lip. Cymbidium bicolor is wide spread in tropical Asia and has 3 subspecies. It likes a warm humid environment with lots of light. Temperatures can drop in winter to 15°C or even lower wile in summer 30°C and more is tolerable. This species is rare in collections, still easy to maintain and rewards you with an annual blossom that strikes most of us.
