    Question Rot on pbulb

    Hello. I'm attaching a picture showing some rot on a pseudobulb on my Dgmra Winter Wonderland. It has a lot of pbulbs, and most of them are plump and healthy, but this one obviously has something going on. Does it need to be removed, or can I safely ignore it?

    I would also like to ask if anyone knows the usual blooming time for this plant; I have looked at a bunch of different places on the web and that info has escaped me. Thanks!

    it can be removed but only if it is at the non growing end.If it is in the middle
    and there are a minimum of 3 bulbs each side of it ,it could also be cut out just like dividing the plant.If it is cut out and there is still bulbs behind you may be lucky and get the backbulbs to shot.

    The flowering season fot this plant is classed as variable as it may flower 3 times in 2 years.
