    Well, Danny, I use 10-30-20...But that's just my humble opinion. I start using it in late Fall, when ALL growths have MATURED. The ratio I mentioned, has given me more, & bigger flowers. Good luck...I'm looking forward to seeing it in bloom! Betty :-)

    Thanks, ill try to find some in the mean time. Ive been waiting 5 years for it to bloom (only 5 because i got interested in orchids when i was 15), but my mom has been waiting almost 10 years for it! The suspense is killing us. No matter what species it is, it will always be a very special plant for my family.

    I am going in tomorrow to water and check up on everyone, I will count then. But a solid guess would be 10-12 psuedobulbs, with two more emerging. The cat is split into two pots.
