    Default Cycnoche/Cycnode in dormant stage - when to start watering again?

    I have been growing orchids for less than a year and have branched out to include two cycnoches and one cycnode. My Cycnode Wine Delight ‘JEM’ FCC/AOS (mature plant) and Cycnoche Cooperi (Cyc. Cooperi ‘SVO III FCC/AOS x Cyc. Cooperi ‘Mem. Pat Worthington’ AM/AOS) (young plant) have begun to show signs of new growth in the last week. I would greatly appreciate any guidance on how long to hold off until I restart the watering/feeding of these.

    hi, basically you can water once the roots from the new growth is about three inches long. i see that you are on the right track to keeo those dormant bulb in dry media and the lead bulb is much larger than the previous one. no rush to water for now.
