Cymbidium goeringii "Kourin" (Japanese) 日本春蘭「光琳」: Stage 1 shading is completed with a white flower bud. Now, it's time to continue shading the bud with an aluminium foil, remove the foil 2 weeks before it blooms next spring (spring 2022). The bud must go through vernalization (0C-10C at at all times) in the winter in order to bloom. The flower bud will stay this size (3cm-5cm) just 1 month before it blooms. This plant was received damaged with only 3 leaves 3 years ago. It started to bloom last year, this is the 2nd year in a row that it produced a bud. When following the Japanese C. goeringii culture methods, it grows strong roots and can bloom every year. Last picture was the bloom this spring (Feb 2021).
