In order to initiate the growth of flower spikes it is necessary to have a nighttime temperature difference of about 20 degrees in the fall. Cooler night temperatures are also needed while the plant is in bud. During the winter, day temperatures should be between 65?F to 75?F (18.3?C to 23.9?) and night temperatures should be between 45?F to 55?F (7.2?C to 12.8?C).

Feeding instructions
When the Cymbidium is in active growth, you will want to fertilize regularly. An orchid fertilizer solution of (20-20-20) is recommended. During the winter months, applying fertilizer once a month is sufficient. It is important to remember to never add fertilizer to an orchid that is dry because you can cause severe damage to the roots and leaves.
Flowering period
The cymbidium bloom is triggered by a combination of falling temperatures and reduced water. The miniatures have generally been crossed with warm-house orchids, so they aren't quite as dependent on cold weather to bloom, but it's still an important part of cymbidium culture.The natural bloom season is during the winter when your plants should be indoors and available for display. Cymbidium flowers grow in sprays, with spikes arising from new pseudobulbs every season.
