I bought a Cycnodes Taiwan Gold five weeks ago & was pleased with the healthy looking leaf-less plant sitting in a pot of moss. However I noticed yesterday that the pseudobulb was weeping & on further inspection noticed a small amount of rot at the base although I hadn't watered my orchid since I received it. Deciding I had nothing to lose, I cut out the rot & discovered it was much worse than I originally thought. :cry:
I sealed the wound with cinnamon & I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
My question is.........has anyone had the same problem, removed part of the pseudobulb and the orchid survived?

Thanks in advance

Yes, once on a few leading bulbs of a Euchile citrina.... the slugs got to them in fact, and I cut out the damage and sealed them with cinnamon. it pulled through.

I think it's relevant as to whether the nascent growing shoots at the base of the bulb have been killed. Do you know how yours are?

Rob.....I'm not really sure, I needed to cut away one side of the root area on the bulb.

Ed.....Bought it on-line from someone based in Essex. I've bought from them before & have been happy with the orchids I've received.....just unlucky this time I guess.
