This is a new Orchid for my collection. I do not know much about it, but I liked the flower and I got it cheaply from Columbia Road Market. The Cambria orchid is a hybrid developed from several types of orchids with varying spectacular colours like this one. It is not terribly difficult to grow and it should excels at the average temperatures in most homes. It is said not to like direct sunlight and likes its roots to be in darken pots. The plant develops a bulbous at its base from which the flowers will grow.
