Beautiful in 2020 and 2021!
What mix are you using in the pot and what is your minimum winter temps?

The mix is bark, perlite, charcoal, and a touch of oyster shells. I aim for no less that high 50s for the minimum temperatures. I let this brachy get a little cooler than the other brachy in my collection.

It always blooms on 2-3 growths but the blooms rarely sync up.

I was not taking good care of mine that had a nice flower. So I got myself two new ones. They seem rather small compared to what I had in the past.
Yours is nice! A compact plant too!
