The Cymbidium Orchid is a slightly different orchid, which rewards you with lush flowers. It comes from the higher altitudes of Taiwan and China and therefore, unlike its tropical relatives, does not appreciate cooler temperatures. A cool winter garden, a bright staircase or an airy bedroom are ideal to enjoy their flowering splendour.
