Cymbidium Species
Stephen Early


Cymbidium tigrinum

The pseudobulbs of this species resemble those of a coelogyne.  The scape is 12 - 23 cm long with 2 - 5 honey scented flowers.  The flowers are 4 - 5 cm across. 


We grow this plant under shadecloth and as yet have not flowered it due to its size.


On bare rocks and in rock crevices in open situations.


Burma, N E India, (Nagaland), China, 1500 - 2700 m
