    Default Need some Cycnoches help

    I purchased two little Cycnoches last month. One is Cyc. loddigesii and the other is Cyc. herrenhusiana. Both were dormant and dry. They both now have sprouts and I have not yet begun watering. Any hints? I broke a rule, I bought plants I did not first research but I knew if anyone knew how to handle them - you guys would.
    Regards,
    Don

    Don, you have done everything right till now, I would start watering them once you can see the first root tips sprouting from the new growth, which should be around 2-4 weeks depending on the temperatures and growth of the pups.
