 Cycnodes Wine Delight, also called as Cycnoches Wine Delight, is a hybrid whose parents are Cycnoches lehmannii and Mormodes sinuata. This hybrid was registered in 1980 by R.Coffman and created by F.J.Fuchs Jr.


 Cycnodes Wine Delight is a sympodial epiphyte orchid hybrid with 5-7-leaf pseudobulbs, in their form resemble a carrot, grow quite tightly to each other, about 18 cm long and 3.5 cm wide. The leaves are medium green in color, have 9 veins, reach a length of up to 35 cm, and a width of up to 6.5 cm, with a maximum of 2 years. Peduncles partially hanging down, appear in the sinuses between the leaves, reach a length of up to 15-18 cm. Each individual pseudobulb can produce up to 4 peduncles. On one peduncle accounts for from 2 to 10 flowers.

 This hybrid can blooms at any time of the year, especially preferring the spring and summer period. The duration of flowering of each individual flower is about 10 days. The flowers have wine color, not fully disclosed, up to 10 cm in diameter. Sepals and petals are almost identical in shape, lanceolate, with pointed tips, about 5 cm long and about 1.7 cm wide. Upper sepals may be rounded in the shape of a sickle. The lip is in the form of a spoon, perpendicular to the rest of the flower, about 3.5 cm in diameter.


 Cultural information should only be used as a guide, and should be to be adapted to suit you. Your physical location; where you grow your plants, how much time you have to devote to their care, and many other factors, will need to be taken into account. Only then can you decide on the cultural methods that best suit you and your plants.


 Cycnodes Wine Delight loves bright sunlight and is able to safely carry direct sunlight (50000-70000 lux), acquiring a more compact size and a lighter shade of leaves and pseudobulb. Bright sunlight is one of the main prerequisites for the flowering of orchids of this group, and if the lighting is insufficient, then the orchid will simply not bloom, as new pseudobulbs grow underdeveloped, i.e. incapable of flowering. Throughout the year, the duration of daylight hours should be at least 10 hours, ideally 16 hours. As a place of dislocation of the plant suitable southern, western, south-western and south-eastern windows. If there are no such people in the apartment, it is strongly recommended to use artificial light lamps in addition to natural lighting.

 This hybrid belongs to the moderately warm temperature, however, it adapts quite calmly to colder temperatures. During the whole year it is recommended to keep the orchid under the following conditions: Day temperature at 20-30 ° C (maximum 42 ° C); Night temperature not less than 15 ° C. For successful cultivation at home, it is necessary that the night temperature of the content is always 4 ° C lower than the daily one.


 This hybrid orchid need the humidity level of about 60%. In conditions of high humidity, it is necessary to regularly ventilate the room where the plants are kept, as moist, stale air is an ideal medium for mass reproduction of various types of fungal and bacterial diseases.

Substrate, growing media and repotting:

 Cycnodes Wine Delight is grown mainly only in the substrate (in pots and hanging lattice baskets), however, landing on blocks is also possible. The substrate should be very breathable, so its quality is best suited to a mixture of bark of conifers with charcoal, roots of ferns and sphagnum moss (up to 50%). When growing orchids on blocks to prevent rapid drying of the root system of a plant, it is recommended to make a small layer of moss between it and the block. Live or dry sphagnum can also be put on top of the roots.

 This plant does not need frequent transplantations, therefore, it is desirable to transplant only when it is really necessary, for example, in cases of strong salinization or compaction of the substrate, at its critically high or low pH (the norm is from 5.5 to 6.5) or when the plant grows large and the pot becomes cramped to it (pseudobulbs begin to hang from the edges of the pot). The best time to transplant is when new orchid sprouts reach a size of 5 cm and begin to grow their own roots.


 Watering this hybrid is directly dependent on the total temperature of the content, the higher it is, the more often it needs to be watered. Plants growing on the blocks, it is desirable to water daily in the morning, so that in the evening their roots can dry relatively well. When watering orchids in pots, it must be remembered that excess water when watering should flow freely from the pot, since stagnation of water both inside the pot and in its pan can very quickly lead to rotting of the roots and lower parts of the plant. The substrate between waterings should dry well.

 During the period of growth, this hybrid is fertilized once a week in the usual concentration of fertilizer indicated on the package. In addition to root dressing, it is also recommended to produce foliar when the outer part of the plant is sprayed with very diluted fertilizer. It is best to feed the orchid, alternating between these two methods. At the beginning of the growing season (the emergence of new sprouts) feed the orchid with fertilizer with a high nitrogen content, and by the time rounding of the new sprouts - fertilizer with a higher phosphorus content. You can use organic fertilizer (bird droppings) and fertilizers in the form of sticks and granules, which are poured into the substrate in the spring and which in a few months equip the root system of the plant with nutrients. When using them, fertilize the orchid can be no more than once every 6-8 weeks.

Rest period:

 According to the natural features in the homeland of the parents of this hybrid, the Cycnodes Wine Delight undergoes a slight cool dormancy during the winter period, which is strongly recommended to be produced only if the plant is not in the stage of active growth in winter, i.e. all his pseudobulbs are already formed. Starting from the end of November, the orchid is placed on a window of medium illumination (east or north) and is somewhat drier and colder than usual and not fertilized. The general temperature of the content can vary from 10 to 16 ° C (less often 18 ° C). Watering needs to be coordinated with respect to lower temperatures, for example, if an orchid is cooled to 10-14 ° C, it is not watered at all, and if the plant is kept at 15-16 ° C, then the substrate between waterings should dry well and about 15-20 days is completely dry. With the advent of new sprouts or flower stalks, the dormant period ends: the total temperature of the content rises, and the watering of the orchid is resumed very, very carefully, starting with a light spraying from a spray bottle, and when the new sprouts have their own roots, then in the usual volume.
