    Isn't copelandii more of an intermediate/highlander than a true highland species? Temps of 5-17c sound a bit on the cool side to me.

    I don't think so Tony, my N. copelandii is tolerant of growing in true highland conditions. It drops to around 8-10C at night in the greenhouse and it hasn't missed a beat yet. I do agree, 5C is a bit chilly but it shouldn't cause yellowing leaves.

    They're not yellow leaves,they're brown.It is my Orchid in another post that is yellow.Also I have 2 N.fusca's and they're also turning brown.I'm guessing cause I was using the water tray for them too,so I took them out as well.*Niki*

    Hi, again.
    I keep mine at a min of 10c and it seems happy, but I've heard of people growing it in warmer conditions too. I think it's quite a tolerant species.

    So the leaves that have turned brown on mine,which is almost all of them,will they fall off and grow new ones or will they just turn green again? Thanks [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] *Niki*

    Are they dead, crinkly brown or sunburnt reddish brown? there's a huge difference as to what they mean.
