Cultivating this beauty is a gratifying experience, and we've compiled some essential tips to ensure your Cymbidium Chen's Ruby thrives:

Watering: Maintain a consistent moisture level, especially during the active growth period in spring and summer. Ensure the potting medium remains evenly moist, allowing water to flow through the pot for at least a minute during watering sessions. As the late summer approaches, reduce watering frequency, keeping the plant barely moist during winter dormancy.

Lighting: Provide ample but indirect light, particularly from spring to autumn, to encourage robust growth and vibrant blooms. Avoid exposing the plant to direct sunlight, which can lead to foliage sunburn. Aim for medium to golden green leaves, indicating optimal light conditions.

Temperature: Unlike cold-tolerant varieties, Cymbidium Chen's Ruby thrives in environments with consistent temperatures. Heat-tolerant cymbidiums (HTC) like Chen's Ruby flourish in tropical climates without significant day and night temperature fluctuations. No winter temperature drop is necessary for blooming.

Fertilization: Nourish your Cymbidium Chen's Ruby with a balanced orchid fertilizer every two weeks during the active growing season (March to September) to promote vigorous growth and abundant flowering. Adjust the fertilization frequency to once every three weeks in late winter and fall, and monthly during mid-winter.

Potting: Repot your orchid in the spring after flowering, typically every two years or when the potting medium begins to decompose. Ensure adequate spacing between plants to facilitate air circulation, minimizing the risk of pests and fungal issues. Consider using a small fan indoors to improve air circulation, promoting healthier growth.
