    Default My Zygo Bluebird is becoming a Yellow Bird.

    I got this Zygonisia Cyonosure 'Blue Birds' a few weeks ago, and basically, it's growing healthy and happy, so I'm not complaining. I did notice however, that just one leaf (bottom) is really turning bright orangy yellow, and the bulb, while firm, is lying down. You will note the other bulbs are standing up big and tall.

    Just wondering from you guys who know more than me, if this is just normal behavior (older leaf and bulb maybe??), or do I need to take some sort of action.

    Here's what she's looking like:

    Thanks for the help everybody. I can't wait for this one to bloom. It's one of my favorites. Okay, they're all my favorites.

    Thanks Ron. I sort of suspected that, but wanted to be sure. I just love this plant. It makes me smile every day.

    Yes, I agree. (to the normal leaf loss and the plants that make me smile comment).

    Cheers,
