The Cymbidium orchid thrives best in a bright spot, but avoid direct sunlight. For example, place the orchid on an east or west-facing windowsill, where it receives bright indirect light. Make sure the plant is not too close to the window as this can lead to burning of the leaves. It is important to rotate the orchid regularly so that all sides of the plant receive even light and promote growth and flowering.
A Cymbidium should be kept slightly moist and should definitely not dry out. One watering every seven days is sufficient, check that no water remains at the bottom of the pot. Water the Cymbidium again when the soil is almost dry. In the summer period, an orchid can dry up faster and more watering is required.
Repotting: It is important to repot the Cymbidium in orchid soil once every three years, or sooner if the soil has decomposed. Use an airy soil mixture for the Cymbidium that is especially suitable for orchids. Never place the Cymbidium in potting soil.
After flowering, cut the flower stem to the heart from which the stem grew. The plant needs a cool period after flowering. After this rest period, the Cymbidium will form new shoots from which it will bloom again. The plant will bloom again after about 1 year.

The Cymbidium Orchid, also known as the boat orchid, is one of the oldest and most cultivated orchids in the world. The history of the Cymbidium Orchid dates back to more than 2,500 years ago in China.
In ancient China, Cymbidium Orchids were cultivated and prized for their beauty and fragrance. They were considered a symbol of nobility and were often used in royal gardens and palaces. The emperors of China were especially fond of these orchids and had extensive collections in their gardens.
During the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD), Cymbidium Orchids were introduced to Japan, where they quickly became popular with the aristocracy. They were considered a sign of wealth and status and were often used in tea ceremonies and other formal events.
In the 19th century, Cymbidium Orchids were brought to Europe by explorers and plant collectors. They quickly became a favorite choice for gardeners and were grown in greenhouses and conservatories. The Cymbidium Orchids were valued for their long flowering period and beautiful flowers in different colors and patterns.
Today, Cymbidium Orchids are grown all over the world and are a popular choice for gardeners and florists alike. They are prized for their showy flowers, long shelf life and easy care. The Cymbidium Orchid is a timeless flower that is still loved for its beauty and elegance.
