    care as usual.........as i said above, newly acquired Orchidioides and Iperua section utrics often lose their leaves and send up new ones, if it was something like sandersonii or livida i would be concerned about all the leaves dieing when yah first get it....with reniformis it happens pretty often, hell mine sometimes do it after repotting or loosing them in the area around where i take a division.....reniformis has tubers all year long and they are not a sign of dormancy......they dont have a true dormancy such as with VFT's and Sarrs.......they have periods where they dont really grow and periods of active growth.....who knows what clues they use to decide this....so long as you have healthy looking tubers you have a healthy plant, just leave it alone and give it a month or two to send up new leaves before you start worrying about it......

    as for that thread, all i can say is.................I MISS TAMLIN!

    Who spake (or is it speaketh?) my name

    Hmmm, I have to say that this species survived virtual total neglect in my terrarium, thriving without any medium whatsoever on a wet to dry cycle for the past 4 seasons spreading through my water trays to which it escaped and flowering without any cold or dormancy abundantly each spring. I daresay it is the most hardy of all the Utric's I've killed. I think once you get it going you will be home free. The trick is to allow the medium to occasionally dry out so as not to rot the rolons...*heh heh*....I have dried it and froze it and would have burned it too if I tried a little harder. A very interesting article in the ACPS several yers back had a grower growing it in potting soil, yes I said SOIL, with regular applications of epiphite fertilizer and had several flowerings per season. There are many paths to the mountaintop.

    Missed you too my snakey friend!

    T,

    You put the same number for both of those but based on the context I am pretty sure they should be different.

    A couple days ago I noticed a new leaf poking through the substrate. I planted the rhizomes in a mix 1/1/1/1 Fine orchid bark, lfs, peat and perlite. Let it dry somewhat, then watered. Two weeks later, I watered with a 1/2 strength epiphytic fertilizer. Upon seeing the new leaf, I have started using a shallow tray to give it wet feet. Hopefully, the other two rhizomes will start growth as well. Thanks everyone for your advice. Probably the most important information was "patience." Here is a pic of the new leaf.IMG_1887
