Maybe you are surprised that this beautiful flower was chosen to represent September, but contrary to what happens with the rest of orchids, the Cymbidium can be produced during winter and its flowering period is from September to January.
Another strange fact about these flowers is that they can combine different colours like green, yellow, red, pink, brown, and white.
The Cymbidium orchid: The perfect flower for a September wedding
There are many weddings held in September. If your wedding is this month, have you considered the Cymbidium orchid as the star flower for the ceremony?
It is an excellent preserved flower for your bouquet. We recommend it for you as you will ensure that your bouquet is very special and delicate, with some subtle touches of colour that will seem as if they are painted in a unique and different style. You can have a bouquet that only has this type of orchid or you can combine them with other flowers or plants.
Also, these flowers are perfect for wedding centrepieces too as they make up the perfect detail of the ceremony.
Giving a Cymbidium orchid
If you would like to give a gift of a Cymbidium you should learn beforehand what each one of these flowers symbolises depending on their colour:
- Violet: Symbolises justice and wisdom, which is why it is the perfect gift for your lawyer, psychologist, etc.
- Pink: If you give pink orchids you are declaring your love for that person, so…be careful! But, if you are sure…it is the most romantic way to tell them. These beautiful pink flowers will openly tell that person how much you love them.
- White: White flowers transmit purity and Innocence. Therefore, they are a lovely gift for a ceremony, for example a communion or a wedding.
Care for Cymbidium orchids
The ideal temperatures for this species of orchid in summer fluctuates between 23 and 30 degrees Celsius, while in winter it is between 10 and 15 degrees Celsius.
Winter is good for them because they begin to flower, even so, you must avoid having them in very low temperatures, as with very high temperatures in summer.
Regarding humidity, they are not very particular in this aspect, even so, 50% humidity is perfect for them.
Lastly, regarding sunlight, fresh Cymbidium orchids need a lot of sunlight, although they don’t tolerate direct sunlight very well.
This special care is not necessary if you acquire a Verdissimo preserved flower because they don’t need maintenance and, also, they last longer.
