    Hello everyone
    Ive been searching for a few days for the name of the line where dried leaves break off on some type of orchids (Oncidium, Cymbidium, Phalaenopsis, Vanda ...). In Neofinetia falcata they call this line tuke. Would anyone be able to help me on this? Im sure I've heard it somewhere just can't remember it for the life of me.
    Thank you in advance for the help
