Exclamation Onciduim leaves curling inward...

Hi all. I had posted this issue in the beginners discussion, and then thought maybe it should be here as well. I have an Onciduim that was given to me having already bloomed, so I really am not sure what it is. Not sure how much history is revelant here, but anyway, it looks good, nice & green, and I recently repotted it in S/H, using Ray's methods and meduims. It's in a clear glass vase I drilled holes into (I did this all my orchids and they are all going crazy!!) and I can see the beginnings of bright green roots happening thru the glass. The only problem is that the tall and otherwise heathly leaves seem to be curling into them selves. Actually it's only one, but I tend to run for the cliff. It isn't curling down ward, but more like a fruit roll up standing on it's end. (Can't think of any other way to describe it, and I don't have a camera to post a pic) It's on a heat mat with the others, getting the same light, humidity, and since it went into the S/H I've noticed this. I am hoping it's just an adjustment period. Any ideas?

My limited experience with S/H is that any old and existing roots die and the plant needs to survive on the new growth's new roots until it becomes established. Hopefully you had some new growth and roots starting before you moved it. I am thinking it is a mature pseudo bulb that is now losing its roots and suffering a bit. Hopefully it will bounce back.

I don't use s/h but I agree that it's probably part of the adjustment process.
