This C. goeringii variety is very floriforous, produced 4 flowers April 2021 and 4 flowers April 2020. This year, produced 3 flower buds. To save energy, as recommended by my Japanese Cymbidium vendor, I decided to pluck all 3 flower buds, so there will be more new vigorous new growths next year. Last picture is the flower picture. Because I decided not to flower them this season, I did not shade the buds, so the buds are green (supposed to be white when you shade the buds) and the flower sheath has a tough texture (flower sheath has a soft texture when you shade). All other orange flower varieites have flower buds again this year and the buds are shaded since mid August.

yes, bloomed 4 flowers 2 years in a row. Cannot bloom it forever. C. goeringii are delicate, this is a routine procedure done at the end of the summer/early fall. I had to do this to 2 of the plants this year. The other ones with buds are fine.
