Today at the University where I work, Farmers Market visited and I bought a huge orchid. The vendor told me that it was a hybrid cymbidium (it had no tag).
It has very broad leathery leaves looking just like a Phal, but the leaves are very hard, thick and broad. Grows like a phal also.
The two spikes are more than 24" and have flowers that are maroon, brown peach and yellow. The flowers are the size of wildcat colmanara and have the same formation.
She said it was a hybrid Cymbidium but had no more information and they grow them in the Redlands. It is a monster of an orchid that I got for $20.
Can anyone shed any light on the name of this orchid.
The fowers have no fragrance but are very beautiful and grow from the stalk just like a Colmanara. The leaves are just long, leather hard and broad like a phal.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
