One of the remarkable characteristics of Cymbidium Valentine's Love is its high demand among orchid enthusiasts due to its striking beauty and long-lasting flowers. Moreover, this orchid variety is known for its warm-tolerance and vigorous growth, making it relatively easy to cultivate. It has the remarkable ability to bloom twice a year, further adding to its allure and desirability.

Light Requirements: Cymbidium Valentine's Love thrives in bright, indirect light. Place the orchid near a window where it can receive ample light, but avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves.

Temperature and Humidity: This orchid variety prefers moderate temperatures, typically between 65°F to 75°F (18°C to 24°C) during the day and slightly cooler temperatures at night. Maintain a humidity level of around 50-70% to provide the ideal growing conditions.

Watering: Water the orchid thoroughly when the top inch of the potting medium feels dry. Be careful not to overwater or let the plant sit in standing water, as this can lead to root rot. Allow the excess water to drain completely.

Potting Mix: Cymbidium Valentine's Love prefers a well-draining potting mix. A mix consisting of bark, sphagnum moss, and perlite or vermiculite works well. Repot the orchid every 2-3 years or when the potting medium starts to break down.

Fertilization: Feed the orchid with a balanced orchid fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength. Apply the fertilizer every 2-4 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce fertilization frequency during the dormant period (fall and winter).

Air Circulation: Adequate air circulation is important for Cymbidium Valentine's Love. This helps prevent the growth of fungal or bacterial infections. Avoid placing the orchid in a stagnant or excessively humid environment.

Dormancy Period: Cymbidium Valentine's Love has a natural dormant period during the fall and winter. During this time, reduce watering and fertilization, and provide slightly cooler temperatures to encourage blooming in the following season.

Division and Propagation: Over time, Cymbidium Valentine's Love may outgrow its pot. Divide the orchid during repotting to create new plants. Each division should have at least three pseudobulbs. Additionally, this orchid can be propagated through backbulbs or keikis (small offshoots).

This is a blooming size orchid in a 5" pot, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited!

By following these tips, you can successfully cultivate Cymbidium Valentine's Love and enjoy its stunning blooms multiple times a year.
