Cymbidium is one of the largest genus in the orchid family and a number of hybrids have been bred in the world. During mass‐propagating the Cymbidium “Dongyang” using the meristem culture technology, a useful leaf mutant was selected from the protocom like bodies. The new Cymbidium variety by in vitro mutangesis from “Dongyang” was named as 'Daegook' in 1998. Compared to Dongyang, “Daegook” mutant has white or yellow stripes along the margin of leaves and flowers. The plant length of “Daegook” was shorter than “Dongyang” and the mean length and width of leaf in “Daegook” was 40 cm and 1.6 cm, respectively. The new variety, “Daegook”, is expected to be a popular Cymbidium variety among consumer as a ornamental orchid mutant for pot culture by its fine and unique stripes and growth characters.
