Leslie,
Love the intense colour on the lip. Could there be a root problem that has caused the shrivelling?
I haven’t noticed it ever being robust with fat bulbs in this cultivar (or many of my warneris). I’m sure it can do better. But it’s my experience that warneris are always shriveled when in bloom even in its home Brazil.

Anyone notice this too?

I‘ll check mine when they flower. Too early yet. I didn’t notice it last year when ‘graue’ flowered.
so do the plants recover their plump bulbs later in the year?
