    I am not sure the size of your pot and the media you use, but cattleyas like to be on the dry side. Twice a week watering might be a little too much water. I only do twice a week watering in the summer.

    It might also good idea to repot it with some fresh new media to encourage the root growth.

    I agree with Satish on watering it more often. Wrapping the roots with some moss should help to retain the moisture too.

    You can keep moist by watering it more water, and bring it into place with the morning sunlight from 7 am until 10 am, I think you do so within a month the trees will grow new roots
    This is the image that I separated and planted with ferns, are covered with a thin layer of moss to hold moisture .

    You should not fertilize when plant is not new roots grow, the problem now is that you must create the necessary humidity is a new tree can grow new roots .

    You could see the picture below (about a month I see new roots growing trees)



    If no data is to moss moist, you can try this (this is just my own experience , you can ask the opinion of others for more)

    I have used inorganic fertilizer NPK content is 20-20-20, with a dose once in a week, it's fertilizer products are popular on the market
