Symodial flowering habits?
I have been wondering about the flowering habit of sympodial orchids: I have gotten the impression from my reading that each year the orchid grows a new piece of rhizome with a pseudobulb and that inflorescences are only produced on that newest pseudobulb, in which case I would assume that the orchid would only ever have one inflorescence per bloom season. However I have also seen pictures of plants with numerous inflorescences. Are they made-up photo's with extra inflorescences added or does a pseudobulb continue to produce flowers in succeeding years along with the new pseudobulb's flowers (or do different orchids have different blooming habits!)? Thanks for your help in clarifying this for me.
