    Default My mounted Aerangis orchid leaves are curling..

    I have a mounted Aerangis articulata, that I just brought indoors for the Fall/Winter. I noticed that the leaves are beginning to curl under. Does anyone know why this is happening?

    Loss of turgidity is usually caused by the plant losing more water through transpiration than it is taking up.

    Possible causes can be any or all of: low humidity, insufficient watering, or a weakened root system that cannot take water up well.
