    Don,
    Don't wait until it will tell you. It may be too late.
    Wait until the lead pseudobulbs start to grow new roods and do it.

    Oh my.... my parents had a Chocolate Drop many years ago, I'd forgotten it! Now THAT one (and yours is gorgeous) is on my wish list. I don't think theirs had a variety name though. What a nice dilemma to have though.
