    Default stanhopea dormancy

    Hi, I've just read that stanhopea need to go through a dormancy period (winter?). I didn't know, and kept moss moist since dec till now. I believe it is approaching maturity. I noticed that the established leaves were beginning to feel paper like, and a small leaf is yellowing. A new growth has started to emerge. I have a tigrini, that is being grown under lights near a humidifier. Does anyone have advice on what I should do at this point. If there indeed is a dormancy period, should watering be reduced as one would with a cycnoches till new growth emerges? HELP! Thanks

    I have an article that mentions a few that like to go drier in winter. Tigrina is not one of those listed. I can't link the article, but if you google Doug Pulley stanhopea culture, you can find it easily. I have an oculata that grows very well, but no blooms yet. I keep it moist year round, but water less in winter. I grow outdoors and my winters are cool. Summers, I may water every day if days are sunny.
