Cymbidium hybrid ???

This is interesting.

I thought it is not found in Nepal. Is it wild?
This should be Cymbidium tracyanum.

Thank you …  Actually it is brought from Mirik, Darjeeling by one of my friend and planted in his garden.

I will check the geographic distribution of Cymbidium tracyanum. I dont have the book of Cymbidium.

Ok, I checked the monograph of Cymbidium by Puy and Cribb and they dont report Cymbidium tracyanum from either India or Nepal.

But this plant is known to be in trade and hence not an odd thing to find in gardens unless someone really collected in wild in India or Nepal.
