I think air movement is key...keep it cool, but not cold, and on the very dry side, and remove all the rotted material. I had the same problem...

I'll try to post a picture later when I get home. But I have this plant Cischweinfia sheehanae (pusilla) and I seem to be killing it. It lost most of its leaves, and some are still turning yellow. Many of the bulbs are rotting or rotted. I water it whenever it gets really dry, and I have it in a moderatly lighted room. It does seem to be growing new leaves, but I can keep track.
I have to admit that when I first got the plant, it was in a hanging basket, I took it out, ripping many of its roots, and then regretted the dicision and put it back in the hanging basket.
I hope I don't kill it.
Thanks for any suggestions.
Ok, here are the pics,
Hopefully you can tell that I'm killing the poor thing.

I was thinking that it was too dry.
Im going to remove all dead and dieing material and place the surving parts under a computer fan and automatic mister so it doesnt stay too wet or too dry. It seems to be growing new leaves, but just as many leaves are dieing.
I'll keep trying to keep it alive. I'de like to see the poor thing flourish.
