This weeks Orchid of the week is… Cym. Green Opal ‘Vic’
Parentage: Cym. Valley Oracle × Cym. Valley Zenith
The reason why it’s our Orchid of the Week:
Greens are a wonderful addition to a collection, and this one is a big flowerer with lovely shape and a very subtle lip.
It is a large plant with a tall upright spike habit and quite large flowers, so you’ll need plenty of room to grow this one! Again, something a little different, but it really stands out and grabs people’s attention when it flowers!
I last flowered this plant in 2021 and sold it to a friend after splitting off a couple of back-bulbs, so unfortunately I’ll have to wait for several years to flower another, however, both back-bulbs have shot new growths, so it wont be long before it’s back!
