    I looked at your picture and there is a couple slight color differences, but the shape is right on...i'm guessing they are kissing cousins!

    Guys, as I mentioned on page 1 I damaged the plants I bought and I was thinking to show them, but they really don't look good. They are not just little burned, they are kinda "well done" cooked... I got several digbyana crosses as well as one digbyana division of an awarded plant that I am going to kill myself for... and Den. Hollywood. Anyway, as I said they now have dark brown leaves and I need advise- Do I need to do something, or the best is to sit and wait for the new growts to bring the plants back? I sure can take a picture if you need me to, but... they are not looking pretty for pictures...

    I would try trimming off the "cooked" portions with clean tools and placing them in a shady area for awhile to let them recuperate. They may come back if the pseudobulbs are intact.

    Thanks, Brandon! I'll do it tomorrow! The bulbs are OK and they have new growths that were not damaged... BTW since then most of the damaged leaves fell off already.
