    Default Cycnode bloom needs protection

    Pop and here come a spike from my never having bloomed Cynode. I have a fear that it might get attacked by an infection. Also, noticed the leaves appear to have black spots. How can I protect plant and potential bloom?Name:  IMG_2798.jpg

    I wouldn't worry about the leaves. They fall off in a couple months anyway. As for the bloom, just make sure it doesn't get bumped and that water doesn't stay on it. I would say the rest is not in your hands. Best of luck and I'm waiting for a photo when (NOT if) it blooms.

    agree with Wade's suggestions, but just make sure those black spots aren't cause by red mites or fungal. otherwise there shouldn't be any problem for the flower to bloom.
    at this maturity stage, i would cut down by half the watering and fertilizing.
    keep us updated and good luck. btw...which cycnodes is this?? =D

    Cycnodes Juan Bagiscan 'Texas Gold'. My last orchid I had in the same greenhouse was close to blooming until it quickly began to droop and die. I believe it was due to a fungal infection although it could have been due to something else. I am trying to prevent this from happening but do not know if there is something I can do.

    I am following Wade's suggestions keeping a close eye. But should there be a turn for the worse, would it be too late to do anything?

    I am going to follow Wade's suggestions, but wonder if there is a turn for the worse is there something I can do?

    there is a wide variety of practice, you just got to pick one that suits you the best. i practice preventive disease program, that is regular fungicide spray irrespective they are in bloom or not. so you must pick fungicdes tat do not interfere with flower formation.
