On the Jan 27, 2012 I recieved an Eria Clausa as a gift I watered it twice since then. I watered it saturday and yersterday. Why did the leaf curl up, Is it because the plant has been shocked due to its transition from a greenhouse to my home or did I over water it or underwater it. Its just one leaf that curled up. No discoloration or spots. It is in a coconut husk mix.

Picture of Eria clausa.

Handsome Eria! Smiling
I didn't know it, so I looked up the Orchid

Having said that, I myself don't worry too much about one leaf curling up. As you said, it could be simply the transition, or it was time for that particular leaf to curl up. If they all drop now I would scratch my head...

OMG, lmao Thank you for the compliment. Thank you for your advice. I was just not sure as to if I should be concerned or just shrug it off as nothing. Its happened to me too many times. I think this is wrong or that is wrong and in the plant suffers in the end because I over watered or repotted prematurely. So I decided to ask a forum.psst. Unfortunately I am unable to post the picture cause I cant find it.
