'Cupped' Cym

cena60March 16, 2008

This is my first rebloom of this plant. Since last year, when purchased, I don't remember if it cupped or not?

As you can see, most of the flowers ARE open. I'm wondering if this is 'just the way it is'?

Charm, it reminds me of your spectacular specimen!

They only opened last week, so I'll give it some time.

One of the reasons that I have avoided full sized Cyms is that I felt they often remained cupped.

Any thoughts on this presentation?

Beautiful colors.

Cupped cymbidium blooms usually indicate that they are slightly wanting more light - unless it is genetically cupped.
