Another important factor you have to consider is the use of fertilizer and growth enhancing factors like hormones and vitamins which are a part of many products nowadays. For the developmental events like floral initiation and organ formation just a right balance of hormones is needed, skew it slightly and the results will be very different. Plants produce their own hormones in the doses they need but a stronger external application from us can cause an imbalance and lead to various malformations.
I keep my one cymbidium in full sun..except for the noon hour (Summer time ). if it doesn't get enough light, it won't set healthly strong spikes. In fact, in the Winter, its always in full sun. Just my opinion...Betty
