That shouldn't have caused the problem... If that temperature range killed plants, I would have no orchids, that's typical at my house. L. tenebrosa is possibly a little warmer-growing than L....

That is tragic! I have seen rot get into the rhizome, and kill a plant from the inside out. No idea where it comes from, just strikes out of the blue.

Good to know. The only one I have been successful with outside is P. formosanum, which doesn't see to need a consistent chill. But the 'fridge is, I think, warmer than a New Jersey winter, just...

Repot. If it is in the original moss, it's probably either broken down, or hard as a rock in the middle. If the moss is packed hard, soak the plant in water for an hour or so and it will be much...
