To establish good growth and a good number of spikes in the fall, feed cymbidiums every two weeks from march to september. Feed once every three weeks and once a month in late winter and early spring.

How do you get cymbidium orchids to bloom?
Orchids like bright light and cool evening temps to bloom. Cut the stems all the way down to the base of the plant to get it to bloom more easily after flowering.
If you want to make sure you get the most out of your orchid, you’ll need to keep it in a cool, dark, well-ventilated area. If it’s too hot, it won’t bloom as well, and if it gets too cold, the flowers will wilt and die.
How often should I water cymbidium?
It is a delicate balancing act to water Cymbidium. They don’t care for a wet environment, so they shouldn’t be allowed to go dry. You should water once every seven to ten days. Feed your cymbidians once a week with a high quality, organic, non-GMO feed such as alfalfa meal, peat moss, or a combination of the two.
Feeding twice a day is not recommended, as it can lead to over-feeding, which can result in the growth of disease-causing bacteria and fungi. If you are using a commercial feed, make sure to read the label to ensure that it is safe to feed to your plants.
What month do you fertilize orchids?
Orchids need to be fertilized at least once a month. During the growing season,Diluted and applied weekly is the best way to get the best results. In the winter, when the plant is not active, use half as much fertilization as you did in the summer. Fertilize the soil with 1/2 to 1 cup per 1,000 sq. ft. of soil, depending on the type of plant you are growing.
Do not fertilize more than once every three to four weeks. If you do not have access to a fertilizer, you can add a few drops of water to the top of the container and let it sit for a day or two before applying the fertilizer. You can also use a liquid fertilizer such as Miracle-Gro, which is available at most garden centers.
Why is my cymbidium not flowering?
If you have a mature Cymbidium Orchid plant that is no longer flowering, it’s usually because it’s in too much shade or too little light.
If your plant is in the shade and you are not able to get enough light, you may need to cut back on the amount of light you give it. If your plants are growing too fast, they may be too tall for your space.
You may want to trim them back a little bit to give them more room to grow.
What month do you repot cymbidium orchids?
They don’t have the time or space to repot at the optimal times because they have too many plants to repot. If you have a large number of plants, you may want to consider using a hydroponic system. Hydroponics is a method of growing plants in water, rather than soil.
The plants are grown in a nutrient-rich nutrient solution, which allows them to grow without the need for fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides. This method is more efficient than growing in soil, but it requires a lot of space and equipment. It is also more expensive than a conventional grow system, so it may not be the best option for you.
Why are my cymbidium leaves turning yellow?
Yellow leaves are an indication that they are getting too much light. Over- watering is the easiest way to kill Cymbidium orchid plants. When watering, thoroughly wet the plant, then let the excess water drain out of the bottom holes. Wait for the top 50% of the soil to dry before watering again.
If you have a lot of leaves, you may need to water more than once a week to keep the plants healthy. If you don’t have any leaves at all, it may be a good idea to cut back on the amount of water you give your plants.
