East Asian cymbidiums are remarkable plants that are considered difficult to nurture by even the most experienced among North American orchid hobbyists. However, very little information on how to grow these plants exists in English. In this presentation, Michael Hwang will teach us everything he knows about East Asian cymbidiums. You'll gain an appreciation of the importance of East Asian cymbidiums in Asian societies and learn about the unique cultural techniques for growing temperate cymbidium species.
