A Symphony of Care for Cymbidiums

Known for their resilience and low-maintenance nature, Cymbidiums are the epitome of elegance in the orchid world. Before you rush to our stores to witness their enchanting allure, let's explore the key care tips to ensure these orchids thrive in your home.

1. Light: Illumination & Brightness

  • Cymbidiums love light but in moderation.
  • Position them in a spot where they can enjoy bright, indirect light, steering clear of the harsh midday sun. 
  • This delicate balance ensures your Cymbidiums receive the right amount of light to showcase their splendid blooms.


2. Temperature: Cool Comforts

  • Maintaining a temperature range of 10-24°C during the day and slightly cooler nights creates the perfect haven for these orchids.
  • INSIDER TIP: exposing them to brief freezing temperatures, especially leading up to October/November, can work wonders, leading to spectacular re-blooms with massive spikes.



3. Watering: Planned Hydration

  • Consistent, scheduled watering is the key.
  • Wait until the top inch of the potting mix feels dry before indulging your Cymbidiums with a drink.
  • Ensure excess water drains away, preventing waterlogged roots and imitating the natural conditions they adore.


4. Humidity: A Balancing Act

  • While Cymbidiums appreciate higher humidity, striking a balance with good air circulation is crucial.
  • This ensures your orchids not only thrive but do so in a healthy environment, free from issues like fungal growth.


5. Fertilizing: Nourishing Elegance

  • During the growing season, treat your Cymbidiums to a balanced orchid fertilizer every 2-4 weeks.
  • As they enter their dormant period, reduce or halt fertilization, allowing them to follow their natural rhythm.
  • We recommend our GARDNEWORKS Orchid Love product for optimal results.



6. Repotting: A Fresh Home 

  • Grant your orchids a fresh start every 2-3 years or when the potting mix begins to break down.
  • Opt for a well-draining orchid mix to create the perfect conditions for root health and overall plant vitality.


7. Pruning: Sculpting Beauty

  • Trimming yellow or dead leaves and pruning spent flower spikes isn't just about aesthetics – it's a practice that encourages new growth, contributing to a more vibrant and flourishing display.
