    No tvery yellow, or maybe not very yellow yet ? Maybe this is just the oldest bulb, and its on its way tro dropping a leaf ; means that the roots issueing from that particular bulb are dead ( or dying).
    Now Psychopsis are capable of keeping roots for much longer than most orchids ; I have seen plants with as many as 7 years growths all keeping their leaves, therefore all keeping their roots.
    I suggest a re-pot. You won't save this one, but it looks as though it is due.
