I think that what you noticed has truth in it ----- as in buds reaching a certain size (beyond a certain stage of development) gets the spike out of the 'danger' zone.

I have definitely seen tall promising spikes (with no buds forming yet) 'abort' - due to change in condition - such as shipped from temperate zone to tropical.

Fortunately, my Cym. Barrita Princess 'Princess' (I have two of them) - both had those late stage buds - and the flowers opened - so nice. The result was reported by growers to be expected - as in beyond a certain stage of bud growth, the chance of going on to flowering stage becomes high ---- or at least much higher than early stages.

Totally convinced that temperate climate cym flowers opening in the tropics - no problem. It's the spike development or spike formation triggering conditions - that's the problem for tropics here.

That has simply not been my experience. When I bring the plants inside where it is cooler for the buds to finish developing, the color is richer. This isn't an arbitrary conclusion I came too. Much epperientation has gone into me developing this method.I appreciate your concern , but that has never been an issue for me.

Hahahahaha, that was the one that made me order from him to begin with! I was looking for that one, and other than his, all I could find was a tiny baby one, and a 60 dollar one in a 4in pot on etsy. So I understand why you couldn't resist that one hahahaha. I couldn't resist it either. And I bet all of yours will be in spike too. All of mine are.

And I think I misread what you are staying. Yes, I leave the plants where they are until the buds reach a certain size, and then I move them. So yes, I think you're right. Once buds reach a certain point in development, it is very unlikely that they will abort due to changes in condition. I think we are kind of saying the same thing.

We are certainly aligned with our views JS. In total agreement with your view.

Looks like the usual ------ as in --- exceptions. Also factoring in the people reporting on various orchids in general - bud drop or bud failure due to a change in condition or conditions.
