    So, my awesome freebie/early bud blasted -- I think the plant got cold, because my orchid collection is next to a window that I open when it's nice. . . but nice for me may not be the same as nice for Madagascaran orchids. BOO. I did repot the plant, though, and a couple months later, now, the new leaf has grown some, but the rest the leaves look just a little more dehydrated, compared to how they were when I got it. I know Angs can take a while to adjust once their roots have been disturbed, so I'm wondering whether it's most likely just that trait, or if I'm not watering it enough. Advice from those of you who've grown these longer?

    I just bought a Angraecum Leonis myself this April and I have watered it ones a week since then but my plant looks a little wrinkled on the leaves, should I water less or more often? Any tips?

    I mist my magdalenae daily and water it for real once a week -- that's more or less what I do with all my orchids, and I put the more water-dependent ones in the front and the drier-culture ones toward the back. My Ang is in the very back and it seems happy, and has been growing a new leaf. Different species, but I'd say, yep, yours probably needs a little more water/humidity.
