    Nice color! Are leaves of this species usually this yellow? It almost looks like the leaves of some Neofinetia variety.

    Naoki, I think that yellow color is for the sun... Some times in my ascocentrum appears like violets spots too...

    Beautiful species! Maybe some extra magnesium would green it up more?

    To avoid chlorosis? In winter gets dark it's self.

    I do try to dose chlorotic plants with magnesium sulfate when I remember and have the time, which is rare these days. Sometimes it helps, sometimes not, maybe because there's a lack of another nutrient like iron.
