    Default help with dendrobium lori's star

    I purchased this orchid in March at a flower show and it was in bloom. Since the flowers have died it has been looking good no changes to color of leaves. I have it in a room that gets bright light and in the early morning direct (although not on the orchid itself). The temp ranges is between 70-75 degrees. I water it roughly once a week and alternate each watering with fertilizer. Basically these are the instructions that I was given from the nursery.
    2 days ago I noticed once of the canes turning yellow and drying out. Not sure what is wrong or how to fix it if at all possible. Ive also had no new growth during this time either. The only thing Ive done different is moved location. Could this be a change in light?

    I'm going to be no help at all as I don't grow dens but I know for sure that the expert den growers are going to want you to post a photo it helps a TON to be able to see the actual plant and problem area

    post pics but also dendrobiums like high light....wat u think is bright might not be at all...how many hrs of light does it get and what medium is it growing in.....i suggest u check d roots and see if it is bone dry or wet....that should narrow it down.....p.s. i grow dendrobiums in full sun and i live close to the equator....not a spot of sunburn
