Cymbidium Dorothy Stockstill "Forgotten Fruit", 2014 blooming

Every year, my plant of Cymbidium Dorothy Stockstill starts producing several inflorescences at the same time.  Unfortunately it aborts many of them.  Usually one or at most two develop successfully every year.  This year it produced only a single, quite short, inflorescence.  The few inflorescences that do not abort, are produced during the coldest time of the year in my locality.  In my locality the coldest time of the year is when almost every night, for several weeks, the temperatures go into the low sixties.
