At the North Jersey show I picked up a Tricopelia suavis "Pololei" division. It isn't in spike. I don't see any new growth. Most of the leaves are erect but two are twisted. None of the PB's are shrivelled.
The only things I think I know are 1) no direct sun, & 2) This plant should like a cooler area of the grow room.
I think it's supposed to bloom between Feb. and Apr.
Right now I am treating it like a rest period ( daily mist, water every two weeks, no fertilizer). Anything else I should know?
Basically, it sounds like your Trichopilia is doing good then... I would actually start giving it the rest period at the end of October, or end of the first week in November... unless you have given your other orchids their rest period at this time...
