    The plant is fine Bruce. Just seems to have decided to skip any significant period of dormancy. In fact, discovered this morning that one of the new growths is already putting out roots. I suppose repotting will come much sooner than I expected. I am guessing that it got confused when I moved it inside to the sunny window...it's getting a good bit more light and it's a little warmer.

    So, this little sucker has lost it's leaves and is, despite my holding back the water, putting out new growth! I don't understand the poor thing. Maybe not cool enough? Either way, I hate to be mean to the little guy, but the reason I wanted it was because it bloomed without foliage...hope he's just confused by something I did.
    For the plant to loose its leaves at this time of the year is normal. Reduce watering as you have started. The new shoot will probably continue to grow. When it is big enough, start increasing watering.

    Thanks Lars... I just didnt expect any activity at all for a couple of months. I've never grown anything deciduous...and the ones that I have grown that needed a rest only needed a very short rest. As far as Reducing water is concerned, I pretty much went from full-on watering to a light sprinkling once every week or two. Barely enough to moisten the moss.

    The growth cycle pretty much depends on the weather, sunshine, etc. Last year, my plants didn't drop their leaves until end of Dec, beginning of Jan and some started geeting shoots again a few weeks later (others took until March). This year, most of my plants have dropped their leaves already. Some started to get second growths a month ago.

    Thanks again Lars! Glad to know I didn't do anything disastrous.
