    Default Clowesia culture?

    Hi! I have a small Clowesia Rebecca Northern plant. It has 4 p-bulbs, one of which is green and has yellowing leaves that look like they are going to drop. The other p-bulbs are a yellowish color. Anyway, it doesn't look so great. I've heard it is decid and needs a rest? Any general tips for this one? I really like the plant and would be so thrilled to bloom it. Thanks!

    Once the leaves drop, put it in a bright spot and water very, very little. I think mine got watered maybe once month. This is also a good time to repot. Remember, dry and bright. Don't start watering again until new growth or spikes are about an inch or so long.
