    Default Confirm my suspicion

    I have a milt. going down hill fast. One day it's beautiful and in bloom, the next all the leaves turn yellow and fall off. Really. In a matter of a week- maybe two, all the leaves have turned or are turning yellow and the base of at least one of the pbulbs is yellow too. At first I thought the blooms were blasting because we turned the air on, but now I think it might be something else. What that might be, I don't know. I haven't popped it out of the pot to check the roots yet, the air is off and has been for a few weeks now, it's not too much light because I pulled it away from the window when it had buds. Any ideas?

    Nope- it went into the garbage. The roots didn't look rotten- most were white all though probably a smidge under watered. Oh well. My local society orchid show is in three months, I'm sure I can drown my sorrows there.
