I agree it's a combination of heat and dry medium. I was fortunately home when my plants arrived. They left Vista the previous day, so only about 24 hours in transit. The medium was not yet crisp dry. It was also 111 F / 44C when they arrived. I brought them into the house and opened the box. I let them sit in the box, still wrapped, for an hour for the temperature to drop slowly. Then I unwrapped and watered each plant with 1 teaspoon / 5ml of MSU powder per gallon of water. I put them in plastic basins standing in a little fertilizer solution and put them in a warm, bright Northwest facing window. I had no heat damage.

Being as it is still pretty early in the season, if they were my plants I would keep on watering. Sometimes these even do another new growth. Or pop out some more leaves. Catasetinae have lots of tricks up their "sleeves".

Nuclear Fall Out is not available in a standalone grex this year. I lost my plant last year. It failed to take off after its rest, so I wanted to replace it. This year Fred worked on crosses only with this mother plant. I did buy all the crosses made this year. I joked with him what an appropriate name for a plant since it seems to represent the times we are living in.

I cut the spike off the galeandra greenwoodiana bec it had 2 small flowers and was suffering from heat stroke. It has grown back to grow more buds from the old spike.

Wasnt done yet I guess.

also rooting around in the bin came across the Ctsm. Jaime Lawson XOXO, I thought it was growing a new cane, but no, its growing a flower spike..

Joy from the rubble of a long too hot summer.

RJSquirrel, Galeandra greenwoodiana orchid is a successive bloomer. Never cut off the spike. It will make more flowers off that spike till it goes dormant or the bulb dies. The next year it may even make more flowers off the bulb.
