ID this Cymbidium?

I was given this Cymbidium 3 years ago and it has doubled its size since then. The first year it had one spike - last year 2 spikes but this year it had 5 spikes.
gorgeous plant.
No one can id the plant for me so I thought someone on here maybe has the same plant. Thanks Russ

RE: ID this Cymbidium?

Sorry Russ, hate to be the bearer of bad news but an ID ain't gonna happen. There are SO MANY cymbidium hybrids out there that look like this that without a tag, ID is impossible. ESPECIALLY in Cymbidiums, one of the most hybridized plants on the market. The best you'll be able to do is say "it looks kinda like....", but again, too many hybrids look like this.

Sorry, it's forever a NOID. Pretty NOID, but a NOID nontheless.

RE: ID this Cymbidium?

Thanks Terguy for the information. At least now I can honestly say I dont know when asked what type of cymbidium it is. Its so easy to grow and take care of.

RE: ID this Cymbidium?

It is a beautiful cymbidium!! Once a NOID, always a NOID. Regardless, you have quite a beautiful and healthy plant!

RE: ID this Cymbidium?

Well this is very good to know because this is the plant my orchid pup came from! Thank you Russ for such a pretty plant! I cant wait till it blooms:) I wish it was hardy to my zone..LOL But will make a wonderful indoor plant.


RE: ID this Cymbidium?

I would LOVE having that cymbidium. I however, cannot trace it to a single hybrid.
