New 2022 Cymbidium goeringii book-最新春蘭花図鑑2022-Saishin Shunran Hana Zukan 2022. Just released last week and just receivee this afternoon. This is a special publication from a gardening magazine. There appears to be a new C. goeringii book published every 2-3 years for whatever reason. The first 15 pages describe the general C. goeringii history, culture, culture techniques/tricks. Then, the book is divided into different section based on where the varieites were discovered. Also, has a section on all the new manmade C. goeringii (by crossing different C. goeringii clones), a whole section of C. goeringii breeding and the trendy new C. goeringii clones that are popular in 2022.Lastly, there is a section on Chinese C. goeringii.

The red one on the cover is a small new trendy variety called 「舞姫」(Maihi). It is a man-made C. goeringii select clone by hybridizing with known C. goeringii varieites. This variety is a cross between 「極紅」(Kyokkou) x 「幾島」{Ikushima) (both are red varieties). Kyokkou「極紅」is a variety discovered in the wild in Chiba Prefecture in 1960. Ikushima 「幾島」is a man-made C. goeringii clone by crossing wtih 2 red flower varieties Mebina 「女雛」(female) x Utamaro「歌麿」(male). Mebina was discovered in Chiba Prefecture in 1970 and Utamaro was discovered in Ibaraki Prefecture in 1962. They breed so that reduced amount of capping time is required. Even with a reduced amount of capping time, it can produce a very vibrant red colour flower. For this variety, capping time is only from end of Sept to mid December (only 2.5 months).
