    My first Cycnoches has just finished blooming so I am new with species also. From research I did online for care of this species what you have pictured is no way close to the dry season. Once the leaves have fallen off you plant and it does not seem as it is going to bloom, look for a spike if you have a spike then wait until the flowers have finished blooming, then the suggestion is to remove the bulbs from the pot, remove all the media from the bulbs and roots separate the bulbs if you like then place them leaning against something and do not water, occasionally mist bulb so it does not dry out, until you see new growth in the spring, wait until the new growth is 3-4 inches tall then pot each bulb, if you wish, in separate pots, now you have two of the same plant. This species likes lots of water and fertilizer will growing so yours did not have too much water unless it was dripping wet when you took it out of the pot.

    Aneta,
    I apologize for not checking your location and where you store your orchids, I live in South Florida and grow all of my orchids outside year round. As your winter has probably started you might have to do as 78Terp suggested and stop watering thus forcing this orchid into its dry season which is required for this orchid to put out new growth in the spring. The one thing I noticed from your picture is that your new growth has not really turned into the bulb shape as the bulb that is older in your pot. I have two links for Cycnoches care that I found online but am not sure if I can post those links on this forum, if I can let me know and I will be glad to do so or try doing a search for Cycnoches care and see what comes up. As you just repotted this orchid I am not sure if you should take the bulbs out or not, I have been told that some never take them out of the pot they are in unless the media has broken down, I read others that say you should, your decision.
    Jack

    I believe those links will work as I am able to link IOSPE here.

    I am very interested in the links too!

    Catasetum-Ian, I believe (or I read it somewhere else), says 2 bulbs is plenty large enough as a division for these types.

    Our orchid show season has just started with a few shows already with many yet to come after the first of the year until Mothers day, will be looking to increase my collection in this species.

    Good luck with growing yours!
