Orchid setback or winter growth? – Which is normal, which is bad

Today we make a comparison between 2 processes which might look similar, but have different implications: winter growth and setback.

Orchids can grow small new growths whenever they experience stress factors. The most severe stress factors are root loss, leaf loss or something damaging vital structures of the orchid. The result is in 100% of cases smaller new growth

In winter we can experience small new growth too, but not as severe and not for the same reasons. Winter growth is perfectly healthy, it can still bloom and function normally, it is just smaller. Usually the orchid picks up normal size with the next growth of spring or summer.

This doesn’t happen to all orchids and not in all environments. Continuous growers in predisposed to season changes grow rooms are most affected by smaller winter growth.
