I just noticed this browning color last night. I read that perhaps humidity was too low, but in its current location I really doubt it. Soil seems fine, no other issues. Recently got this one from Brookside in California. Any thoughts on why this might be happening?

I don't see the browning you indicated. Are you talking about the old sheath?

Maybe the sheath is creating the illusion of browning to me. I'm a little hue blind. When I look at the bud in person, I see some brown color right where the bud meets the stem, but when I look at the picture, I don't see it. Perhaps I'm just worried about this specimen because it was shipped to me in bud!

Thanks everyone. Hopefully with ideal conditions it won't take a small eternity to rebloom!

Sorry for the bud... better luck next time!
I'm used to lost buds with my vietnamense, hope yours is different.
