    Good ones!

    Its quite interesting that the Cymbidiums i saw 15 days back in north kanara were past their blooming time. I guess they have different time patterns!!

    Which place in north kanara?.
    I have seen Cymbidiums flowering in only one place.
    I have seen so many other orchids in waynad.But I couldn't take good photos since it was raining.

    Raining! Odd at this time of the year I guess.

    Btw did you happen to go the Conference on orchids in BLR. Todays DHerald has a small writeup about it. Not much detail there about where, when, who can attend etc. Not sure if its still on!! Guess i missed it :(

    I went to the exhibition. They are selling all commercial hybrid orchids.
    I met T. Ananda Rao and a professor from IIS.

    Botanical Survey of india has some orchid painting from 19th century. Paintings are really nice.

    Can someone tell me what I can get Orchids from, especially the cymbedium one's

  • At 6:42 AM , Blogger PreSam said...

    It is Cymbidium bicolor subsp. bicolor. It is known to bloom in both December and April.

    @ Dreamer:

    Hybrid cymbidiums are available in the North East from Kalimpong and Sikkim. They will not bloom in the plains though. You should look out for species or hybrids of the following species which will bloom for you.

    Cymbidium ensifolium, bicolor, aloifolium, madidum, dayanum, atropurpureum, finlaysonianum, canaliculatum.

    They are not as beautiful as the cool growing ones though.
