I've been growing Cymbidium Orchids for many years. These are in full flower in the greenhouse at the moment and I thought it right to try out my new camera on them. Lots to learn about the new toy but hope you like this first attempt.
For those interested, Cymbidiums grow in nature over a wide area of the world, including Sri Lanka, India, Japan, Malaysia and Australia. As house plants they are always grown in pots (terrestrially) though in the wild some of the about 50 different species are actually epiphytes. As they require cool or intermediate temperatures to grow well, they are ideal for anyone just starting to grow Orchids for the first time and the sprays of flowers last a long time, either on the plant or as cut flowers.
The date taken and time is nonsense due my not setting these details until afterwards! Only got the camera on the 12th January.
