    The flowers on the "Kakadu Crystal" cymbidium orchid are starting to fade. Strangely, it is the last to open which are the first to finish.

    Our "Kakadu Crystal" cymbidium orchid flowers still look stunning even when they have come to the end of their display.

    The last of the "Kakadu Crystal" cymbidium orchid flowers to not have started to curl up. Three have dropped off already & they were the last to open. Its gorgeous flower diisplay lasted more than two months though. :bravo:

    :cry2: The "Kakadu Crystal" cymbidium orchid flowers are completely finished & have all dropped off the spike. They did last over two months which made for a wonderful display.

    It is so sad to see them now being thrown in the bin. :sad3:

    Have put the "Kakadu Crystal" cymbidium orchid back outside to get some sun. Do hope it won't get too much of a shock with the night temps at the moment although there isn't that much difference with being inside. Apparently, cymbidiums need low temps, around 10°C, in the winter.

    Many thanks, Granny. :D So pleased you enjoyed our beautiful orchid. We were thrilled with this one as it is the very first time I have had an orchid flower for me.

    We are still very new to orchid growing & are proud of our "Kakadu Crystal" cymbidium. It was exciting, & surprising, to see the flower spike develop into a lovely spike of flowers. :smile:

    Thanks Granny. :D It may be a long wait though as our other three orchids do not look as though they will do anything any time soon. :faint: In fact they don't look very good at all. :sad3:

    Ah well, we shall see, won't we. :think:

    This would have to be a flower spike growing on our much neglected "Kakadu Crystal" cymbidium orchid.
