    Default Do Restrepia orchids or hybrids go dormant.

    Hi, I have/ had 3 restrepia orchids including brachypus and pretty much within the same time frame all lost leaves (June). Their is no root rot or overwatering issues.. Do they go dormant or can they be deciduous.? I used a miticide/ ovacide after suspicion of a cymbidium carrying mite. No other orchids showed any phytotoxicity signs of harm etc and have a very varied collection. The reason I ask is that i would like the chance to revive them if poss or keep them if they are not infact dead. Otherwise its in the BIN. Thanks to all. My controlled environment is 18 oc to 20 oc night and 24oc to 28 oc daytime and humidity always above 60% before misting. feed weakly. air movement plentiful. thanks to all.
