I would suggest removing the leaves with the damage - it looks like you have one or more good, clean leaves so the plant will be OK.

I would suspect some sort of a fungal infection. I have no...

Leaf pleating at this point is probably "old business" - once it happens, it doesn't "un-pleat" with increased water. More time for soaking won't make any difference - once the roots have absorbed...

It's impossible to find a definitive ID for a hybrid, and even more so for the Den-phal types - too many hybrids look similar. It's a beauty, just enjoy!

The Cym might have had its season manipulated, but it could also be one that is genetically predisposed to bloom early (like now). You'll find out next year. If it is truly an early one, you will...

Good save. I suspect that if it was so vigorous that it had to be cut out of the pot, that it had plenty of good roots to spare. Clearly it did just fine. Well done!

I have seen them in Ecuador, and along the Rio Negro of Brazil. And in my back yard... so they grow under a huge range of conditions. A really lovely species.
