Should I be concerned with my Cyms

Please help.

This on has yellowing leaves but with a new grow.


This one has back spots. Could it be infected with fungus or bateria?

Hi your Cymbidium is now in flower and all the food is going to support the flowers, Then it is trying to put up a new growth.
It is from the old bulb and they will shed leaves as they get old and in stress, It really needs a good feed of strong fertilizer to get it going, I would cut of the flower as well.
Bit of fungal problem but not to much to worry about, give it a good watering as well.

Cymbidiums are a hungry orchid and need a well balanced fertilizer, I like to use a slow release fertilizer of around 12N 6P 14K and keep the plant moist but not too wet in summer
Best of luck as they are a lovely and rewarding orchid to grow, flowers lasting several months as well

I feed weekly weakly and the yellows are just from last years. Think i will just treat with physan in the morning and increase my fert for the cyms.
