Cymbidium Species
Stephen Early


Cymbidium whiteae

The scape is 20 - 30 cm long with 10 - 12 flowers.  The flowers are about 3.5 cm across


We grow this species under shadecloth but are yet to flower it as it is still small but we have now flowered 2 plants this season.  The flower count was down and one had a rising inflorescence with the other pendulous. 


Found usually growing on Schima wallichii and occasionally on Castanopsis sp. in evergreen forest.


Sikkim about 1500 - 2000m
