I’ve had this dude for a long time. I got frustrated with it when I first got it. I bought it in bloom but couldn’t get it to bloom again. Short of throwing it in the ditch...I quit watering it, after feeling sorry for the shriveled up pseudo bulbs, I threw some water on it and...BOOM! This time it has 53 inflorescences and 23 yet to open.4A5F2E69-D20B-463A-9695-2EC76B3F0E0B.jpeg058AE7B0-2A72-439D-8F1C-F3E075D5324F.jpeg

Wow! Just goes to show a little neglect doesn't always hurt. I'm a bit confused by your naming convention though. Is it LC. Gold Digger acquired from Orchid Jungle or? Usually single quotes are used around the clonal name.

After doing an internet search it would appear that the name should be LC. Gold Digger 'Orchid Jungle'. Gold Digger would certainly seem to be a more appropriate name for this plant. Catt. Growers or specialists please chime in.

That is a specimen worthy of a cultural award for you eventhough you almost murdered it lol.
It gets moved outside in the summer and once I bring it back inside I don’t water it, for about 5-6 weeks, nothing...water it...boom. Works great. You can’t find a shriveled pseudo bulb on it.
