    Default Cycnodes Wine Delight 'JEM' FCC/AOS - new growth too early?

    Hi All,

    This fall I got as a present a blooming Cycnodes Wine Delight 'JEM' FCC/AOS. After the flowers died, I watered it when the medium approached dryness. Per my reading, after blooming the leaves were supposed to die off for the winter rest. This did not happen to my plant no matter how much I reduced the water (currently only flushing at 2 weeks without soaking). True, you can see the tips of the leaves going brown and the main bulb slightly shrivelling, but this morning I noticed a new growth. What should I do - start watering / fertilising again or continue with the water deprivation?

    Good advice from King Kjeldz. I grow mine in charcoal.

    Thank you so much, King Kjeldz! If I understand correctly, water very little until the new growths are about 2" then get on an "intense" watering schedule with weekly fertilization, correct? Would copious watering mean twice a week soaking?

    Catttan - I recently put mine in orchiata + perlite. Let's see how it does.
