Black Gumpaste Cymbidium Orchid

I came across this black cymbidium orchid in a Facebook Page – Orchidee – Orchids and immediately fell in love with this black orchid.

So what do I do since I am head over heels in love with this black orchid? Well…. I have made green, yellow, white, pink and maroon cymbidium orchids before.  It’s time I try a black orchid.  After some procrastination, as usual, here is my version of the black cymbidium orchid.

This is as close as I can get to replicate the colour of the actual black cymbidium.  They look different but I love them both 🙂
