    I am hesitant to ask this, but why do you believe this orchid is dehydrated? Some orchids do naturally have leaves that cascade down like this and my Odbrs. Kenneth Bivens hybrid is one of those. The leaf color looks good though I can't see the pseudo-bulbs on your plant. I would ask the gower/ vendor whats normal if possible or seek a second opinion. AL

    I am on the Gulf Coast of Texas, humidity is high here. It was 91% when I woke up this morning. This last week, lowest humidity is around 50% during the heat of the day. We call tillandsia usneoides Spanish moss here. It grows on the old oak trees all over the place. Next time I am out in the country, I will collect some. I like the way it looks.

    With this plant, it did get a little sunburn when I first got it. I know it needs to be repotted. It is unusually large and growing out of it's pot. I will more than likely make it my first victim of learning to divide. I'll try to get pictures. I will have to lay it on it's side to take pics as it will not stay standing on it's own as it is so top heavy. I have to keep it inside a larger clay pot or in the little shelf in the arbor that has high sides to hold it up. It is a big guy!

    Not sure Al. I think it could be that it needs repotting pretty badly. I bought it in early April and it was blooming. I then found another spike and then another- the two that are blooming now. So, I put off repotting. It is an awkward plant as it is so top heavy. There are some burnt spots and dry tips on some of the leaves. A few were there when I bought it. I think I am responsible for a few. But it seems happy where it is at now.

    I am taking a Beginners class at my local Orchid Nursery next week. I will ask about it.

    Here are some pictures of the base of the Beallara. There are at least 5 new growths in the mess. It truly is a hot mess - a tangle of roots and bulbs and it is extremely top heavy. I think, from my limited research, I should be able to divide this one with no major harm being done to him. What do you guys think?

    I forgot to mention, the large bulbs were wrinkled like that when I bought it. They said they would not plump up again. The newer bulbs are still plump and not wrinkly.

    As much as people talk about perfectly smooth pseudo-bulbs with no wrinkles from my experience that is usually not the case. If a orchid like this is growing (new growths) as yours is and it blooms as well as yours does I'd assume it's doing just fine. Thanks for the good photos they helped a lot! Yes it definitely needs repotting, but wait till the bloom cycle is over. Your aerial roots look good also. I'll only add for the future that older (back) pseudo-bulbs usually do not plump up smooth no matter how much water you give them. Here I have seen exceptions though. New bulbs plump up much more though not over night. It can take a few months or more. Enjoy your beautiful orchid and have fun at the classes.....................AL

    In my opinion, wrinkled pseudo bulbs are bound to happen (like wrinkles on our skin) . would have to watch out for floppy leaves on recent new growths.

    I wouldn't divide it. I'd just let it grow into a huge specimen.
