It may be hard to tell in this photo, but I’ve noticed slight browning along the edges of most of the leaves of this Complex x Brachy Paph. I’ve also noticed brown/dryness in the middle of one of the leaves.

Some background on this plant:


Humidity: 50-75%
Temperature: 68-76 degrees Fahrenheit
Watering: weekly, with Dyna-Gro balanced fertilizer 1/2-3/4 strength
Airflow: indirect air current from a small personal fan

I purchased it back in February and attempted to pollinate it on 3/29. Since then the flowers dropped and one of the “scabs” left behind remained green. Is this a seed pod in the making?

it also appears to be putting out a new fan and roots:

Could all of this energy demand on the plant be leading to a nutrient deficiency? I learned after the fact that pollinating plants with less than three mature growths is ill-advised. I’m unsure how to proceed with this plant and any insight on what to do would be greatly appreciated!

i think the leaf is fine. The pollination didnt take.
That’s a relief. What makes you think the pollination didn’t take? I’d like to take not for future attempts.
