Thank You Denis,
I suapected that it is dormant. All of the leaves have
dropped but the base is firm with no signs of rot.
I have it potted in a very airy mix of well rotted
bark and perlite as well as a small amount of sphagnum
moss. It is potted in an Orchid pot with plenty of
holes in the sides and botton for good airation of the
roots and growing medium.
I have watered it extremely sparingly, but upon your
advice I will curtail all watering until it shows
signs of new growth.
I am hesitant to unpot it because it has been through
a shocking experience already with the fluctuating
It has already been repotted 2 times in the past 4

I undersatand that this is an extremely slow growing
Thank you again Denis.
Reguards, John Ludwig.
