(ensifolium x Enid Haupt)
Coarse potting mixture is preferred due to thicker than normal roots, a tight fitting tall pot will result in consistent blooms perhaps twice a year. Prefers the heat and bright light tolerant. They are also quite thirsty and hungry, so the coarse medium implies it needs to be watered a lot. Can tolerate cold temperatures, but protect from frost. The solid yellow blooms have a light-citrus fragrance that can be noticed several feet away in bright light and very warm temperatures.
Use a balanced fertilizer (20-20-20) during growth season, ease off as buds form. Add Nutracote 12-3-15-7-2. It is a 180 day controlled release fertilizer. Apply a tablespoon full per gal pot in late December, apply it again in June.
The 7 and 2 are calcium and magnesium - both are needed by cymbidiums.
