    Nice blooms.

    Does the leaves turn purple on your cordata? I have it growing on the same shelf with other catts, but cordata's leaves are mostly purple while other catts show no sign of burn.

    Just a couple of the leaves on my two cordatas are purple- the rest are green...mostly in south east or south west facing windows.

    Thanks! and, Yes, I think all the orchids in this house who are stingy with blooms should take note of the cordata!
