I left my cymbidiums out longer than usual this fall, into colder  
weather in late October. Within a week of bringing them inside, there  
were multiple flower spikes on all the larger plants. Keeping them  
out until just before frosts occur seems to help trigger flowering.
The huskiest plants are yellow with red inner petals. All will be in  
flower through Christmas. I can send photos if you wish.
The pink-flowered plants are less vigorous; however, I have a pink  
one I am willing to trade for a clear yellow variety, or white.
