[pleurothallid-l] What causes this...

I have several masdevalias (rec'd through the mail at the end of July) 
that look pretty healthy, but several have done something a little odd. 
Two or three have put out spikes that I eagerly watch grow. At a certain
point they stop developing and remain the same for a few days. Then, one 
morning, the bud end is just withered.  This morning, the spike was folded
about an inch from the end. It almost looked mechanical - as if a bird
had tried to sit on it, or someone tried to folk it over. 
When the first one blasted, I figured that it blasted because of the strain 
of going through shipping in late July and then having to acclimate to
the new growing situation. What causes this to happen?
