    Sorry, I don't know why my text didn't upload.
    I'm wondering if you guys think this guy could be sick. Is it not getting enough water and that's why it's shriveling? Or is it getting too much and turning brown because it's rotting? Anyone know if it's sick or not? When should I expect a bloom?

    Based on what I can see in the photo it looks healthy. Some species shrivel like that. Are the tops of the leaves pleated (wrinkled)?

    If you are concerned about rot just remove some of the bark chips until you can see roots and inspect them. Even better would be to remove it from the pot entirely to inspect the roots, Judging from the top of the bark chips it looks fresh. My best guess is that your plant is healthy. Since we don't know what it is I don't know when you could expect a bloom.

    Is the psudobulb soft? If not, then just not getting enuff water or u might have root rot, just check the root to make sure. U do have a very health new growth. So I wouldnt be too worry
