    Ahhh! I think you just found my problem Connie. I found the buds had fallen off when I moved the plant from the lowest of my racks...these get direct mist four times per day. I had put it down there because we were forecast a few days near 100f and it's potted in LECA. No more doing that then. I'll just have to increase shade and hand water.

    After I wrote that I had to go out and water. I made an extra trip around to shake water off buds. It's always good to take one's own advice... LOL! I have been slowing down lately on that.
