Florist & Wholesaler Information

  • Cymbidium Orchids are the longest lasting of the commercially available orchid varieties.
  • Cymbidiums are available year round with the majority of production coming from New Zealand from May to November and  Holland from October to June.
  • South Africa also has export prodcution of Cymbidiums from August to November.
  • Cymbidium varieties change throughout the season and are largely classified as Early, Mid Season or Late varieties.
  • Cymbidiums are graded by length and number of blooms per stem (see grading)
  • Contrary to common perception that these are tropical flowers, Cymbidiums are best stored between 8 and 10 degrees celsius.
  • Storage in boxes can be in an exotics cooler (12-16 celsius) or in a cold room (3-5 celsius). Cymbids stored this way seem to perform well either way.

Grading Information

  • Graded by stem length and number of blooms per stem and usually sold by the stem.
  • - 45cm, 10+ blooms
  • - 55cm, 12+ blooms
  • - 65cm, 14+ blooms
  • - 75cm, 16+ blooms
  • Most popular grades have 10 to 12 blooms per stem.

Grower and Breeder Information

  • Cymbidiums should  be very carefully packed and well secured to avoid bruising or tearing of blooms.
  • Most common quality related credits come from poor packing or botrytis mold spots on blooms.
