Introducing Cymbidium Little Black Sambo 'Black Magic'; a mesmerizing hybrid born from the union of Cymbidium maddidum and Cymbidium canaliculatum var. sparksei. This exquisite orchid boasts a stunning growth habit adorned with an abundance of dark reddish-black flowers, truly a captivating addition to any orchid enthusiast's collection.

This hardy plant exhibits remarkable resilience, tolerating dry conditions at the roots and thriving in a broad spectrum of temperatures. The allure of Cymbidium Little Black Sambo lies in its almost black, miniature flowers that emit a sweet fragrance, creating an enchanting sensory experience. The pendant spikes, reminiscent of a multiflowered "foxtail," gracefully cascade from the sides of the plant, showcasing an impressive flower count ranging from 55 to 85 flowers per spike.

Derived from the crossbreeding of two Australian Native species, Canaliculatum and Madidum, this orchid is somewhat epiphytic and flourishes when grown in a hanging basket with adequate air circulation. Its adaptability extends to warmer, tropical climates, making it a versatile and rewarding choice for orchid enthusiasts worldwide.

For optimal cultivation, particularly in cooler climates, consider placing Cymbidium Little Black Sambo in a sheltered area and adjusting watering practices during the cooler months. The recommended care routine involves keeping the orchid moist, reducing watering in winter, and providing a well-balanced fertilizer regimen. A half teaspoon of 20-20-20 fertilizer weekly from Spring to Fall, supplemented with blooming fertilizer from March to May, ensures robust growth and abundant blooms.

This is a blooming size division in a 3" pot, newly repotted, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited!

Enjoy the allure of the very dark (almost black) flowers throughout the summer months (May – September), as Cymbidium Little Black Sambo 'Black Magic' unfurls its mystique. With a preference for medium to high light levels and strong air circulation, this orchid promises to captivate your senses and elevate your orchid-growing experience. Embrace the magic of Cymbidium Little Black Sambo 'Black Magic' – an orchid that epitomizes elegance and resilience in every petal.
