For example, Cymbidium, after the bud grows out, it takes 5-6 months to blossom. However, there are also a few species of orchids that take a shorter time from bud to blossom. For example, it takes only 15-30 days for Cymbidium to grow buds and blossom.

1. How long can tulips bloom

Tulips usually bloom between April and May each year, which can take more than 20 days.However, the length of the flowering period also depends on the usual maintenance.If the environment provided during flowering is more suitable, the flowering time will be extended appropriately.On the contrary, if the environment is not suitable, the flowers will wither ahead of time.
