Exclamation Onciduim leaves curling inward...

I have some sort of Onc. that was given to me after it bloomed, and all I know for sure is that it isn't a miniature, and that the flowers were white and some other color. (I had seen it on my bosses desk when she first got it as gift) Anyway, I've had it about 5 months. I repotted it in S/H, using Ray's methods and meduims (hydroton but it's named something else) It is on a heat mat, and is with several other phals. The plant looks good, and through the glass (it's in a clear glass vase that I drilled holes into an inch and a half from the bottom) I can see the scant beginnings of new roots in there. But, what I also see is that the leaves, although a nice healthy green, are curling inwards. They are standing up straight, not limp, but they're sort of 'closing up' on themselves. What is causing this?

Are the mature leaves closing up on themselves or is the new growth not opening? Can you post a picture?

It's the mature leaves that are curling up. I can't post a pic as I don't currently have access to a camera. It's the length curling. Not down from the top, but the sides of the leaf curling in.
