Anyone into mini/ultra-mini cymbidiums?

I haven't had cymbidiums for a very long time, largely due to space limitations, but I purchased 2 mini's from Hausermann's this winter, so I'm getting psyched for them again. I have 'Magenta', and 'Pinkie'. Actually I have 4 of 'Pinkie'--much to my delight there were 4 little seedlings packed in one pot when I repotted last week, and I may post one for trade in a while, but only for another mini. The leaves of Pinkie are grass-like, which Is how I missed the extra babies...

Now I'm looking at plants from the Santa Barbara Orchid Estate--will probably be the next place I buy from.

You might also check with New World Orchids.

I've seen a couple ultra mini's at shows but the price tag has been out of my budget.

Hmmm...I see ultra-mini's @ SBOE for $25-35, which doesn't seem too horrible. What kind of outlandish prices did you see at the shows?

Not sure if Parkside Orchid has them, but you might want to check there. If they aren't listed on the website, I would give them a call.


Here is a link that might be useful: Parkside Orchids
