Getting to be a very large plant may have to divide it soon.

Click on the photo and a larger one should appear.
Hope you enjoy

Great photo, I love anything with traceabun in it. Is it fragrant?

Looks Egyptian. I've been looking at all the cymbidiums at floral departments and garden centers here, with a view to trying one in my girlfriend's cold greenhouse but so far am not finding any with small features in combination with deep or otherwise striking coloring.

There used to be an orchid company near here with an entire cymbidium house, it was highly ventilated and cool inside. Walking into it was kind of like stepping out onto the deck of a marine vessel that was underway.

Registered name is Tracyanum Alexander. tracyanum hybrids have a bit of character.

Interesting that it is fragrant - would that all cymbidiums were.
