It is not difficult to raise orchids, but it is not easy to keep them for a long time. Generally speaking, their lifespan is more than ten years. Of course, some of them can last for more than 20 years or even 30 years, but the probability is very small. So, how many years can Cymbidium live?

Cymbidium is a perennial herb, and its cultivation history in our country is less than one hundred years. The magnolia, which is more than 30 years old, is still alive today. It is observed that the orchid is puberty at about three years old, and the flower grows vigorously, and five or six years after flowering, the flower begins to grow poorly. If it is properly managed without major diseases and insect pests, such as serious root rot, soft rot, core rot, wiping or rejuvenation, the life span of Cymbidium can last for many years, reaching several decades or more, and it will not be a problem for the well-raised orchid to live for 30 years.
