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
temperature extremes. 

It has already been repotted 2 times in the past 4
months. I potted it in its current medium after I was
advised by a friend that the heavier soil based medium
it was originally planted in was not airy enough for
this species.

I undersatand that this is an extremely slow growing

Thank you again Denis.

Reguards, John Ludwig.
