    Hey....sorry to hear that. If you could, post a couple of pics of them. The "fixers" here on the forum can help much better with a visual of the plants and the potting medium they are in.

    need some questioned answered. What type of Dends are they? A picture is sometimes worth a thousand word. Can you post one here? Did you buy them potted or bare root?

    Some Dends shed their leaves this time of the year.

    This was my first thought too. It would be helpful if you could post the name found on the plant's tag and a photo or two so we can take a look. I sure hope we can help!

    What type of dendrobiums are they, are they hybrids or philippine indigenous?
    Maybe you've purchased a plant that was established in the cold areas or even a greenhouse?

    Dendrobiums love much filtered sunlight and cool moist windy conditions, that is the perfect conditions for them...

    If you have a indigenous philippine dendrobium like sanggumay (Dendrobium anosmum), it almost adopts to any conditions with no fear of plant getting sick...
