    Looking at the thickness and shape of the canes, this looks like a D. nobile hybrid. This time of year they lose leaves (even on new growths) and you should see buds pushing out through the sides of the canes really soon (or keikis with inproper culture). I checked mine this weekend and they are just showing the "nubbies" now.

    This is great news! I thought it had some sort of disease.

    Keep it dry, bright, and cool if you can. It needs this rest to bloom. Mist it if the canes start to shrivel but don't water until new growth starts.
