    i have basically stopped watering. the last 2 waterings were just spritzing the top of the medium with a spray bottle. the next 2 leaves are fading, and the others look a bit sad.

    This is one orchid that I am anxiously awaiting the opening of the buds. Mine is still a ways behind yours. I find it odd that the spikes start out white. Definately an interesting plant.

    I lost the two bottom leaves also. I thought it was something I had done wrong. Is it already going to start shedding leaves to prepare for dormancy? It is still very hot here.

    i was wondering at first also, as it seemed to happen when i had missed a single watering, but i guess it is about that time... i'm sure environment can trigger dormancy if the plant is mature enough. the plant may need no other trigger than being mature, and it naturally goes domant so if the leaves drop but the plant appears otherwise ok, i guess it's ok... this is my first year with the plant though, so this is different than any other i have, i think more severe than the dendrobiums that need a winter rest. this one just plain shuts down, and supposedly you pay attention to the leaves only, and watering does not matter to the flowers... i did continue to water lightly until the buds were purple. but very lightly. just misting the surface. and of course misting the leaves with an insecticidal soap and neem oil. @#$% mites!
