I hope that future flowerings get longer in the spike Kenneth, that one just gets lost in the foliage particularly that colour. Not my favourite species'but I know it is very popular in China.

This is as tall as the spike will get, for this species of goeringii and I have see many goeringii species even shorter. The goeringii are numerous in number and vary in spike height considerably, I do believe that we have found its correct name, I am waiting for confirmation from the source of the material I used.
Here in China they rate the collectable orchids on a scale of one to five, five being most desirable to collect and most valuable. We believe that our tentative ID show this one to be a five.

The street vender must have bought it from a source in the south of China in a bulk deal and paid by weight of the orchids her bought. Reasoning for this thinking is current market price for this type of goeringii is well over 1,000 Chinese about $130 US dollars my wife paid 10 Chinese dollars for it about $1.40 US. It has to have been wild collected and resold to the vender without knowing its true market price.

I was expecting the plant to be much smaller than it is Kenneth. Certainly a very good buy by your wife!

It is fairly small, it leafs are grass like in appearance, so it is commonly called a grass orchid in China. I have found that a great deal of these orchid do their best root bound.

We have to many really, and we need to repot and break a few dozen up so more pots needed.

You can look online, there are many Chinese nurseries that ship abroad, (My question is are they doing it legally?)

Hi! I found some lovely oriental Cymbidiums for sale inside the EU but can't really make up my mind... Which one would you recommended?

I really like the first two... But I am only allowed to order one ...

Thank you in advance.

Regards,
