    Cymbidium is ALIVE! (and a couple other pics)

    My cymbid. was put outside, it did well and then I left it out during the cold for a couple months, and one night it dropped to 19degrees and it was still sitting out on the balcony...I thought for sure I had killed it. Brought it back it and set it next to the patio door and hoped for the best as I watered it, and now, its growing like mad! It looks better than it ever has....as it was slowly dying last summer before some advice i got here.




    Here are a couple other of my orchids:
    got this one in a mesh mag at HomeDepot--tag says "LC Dinar Blue Haven AM/AOS" Not sure what that means, but its got a new leaf coming out finally.


    Then I got this one at Safeway a couple months ago--Lady Slipper



    And my other I nearly killed when we moved, i managed to save the two tallest of the 4--Burana Beauty


    Thanks for looking!

    Awesome. I just love the Paphiopedilum genus.

    LC Dinard 'Blue Heaven' is the registered name of a specific intergeneric Laelia-Cattleya hybrid and here's what it'll look like:

    WOW! You found a Laeliocattleya at a HD? All we have are half-dead boring slippers and the occasional phalenopsis.

    I guess so... lol! There were a ton of them. They were all about 6 inches tall in little tiny plastic pots wrapped in mesh bags. Im sure they are still there if you want me to go back and check for you I know it didnt cost more than $10 or I wouldnt have bought it. lol

    But wow, those orchids are beautiful, I can only hope that mine will make it to flowering and look that beautiful!
