    My cattleyas are in poor condition - I have got my vandaceous orchids growing really well, located above them - mainly by spraying very regularly, but at the expense of the plants below, which have been too wet . I tried repotting in more open compost - still too wet , then in a media I use for S/H - still too wet, so finally ( since I can't think of anywhere else to go) moved everything into S/H using Leca as the media. The idea is that the air spaces etc will prevent them being too wet. Too soon to know if it is the answer, but plants too wet for a couple of years and repotted three times in that time-span can't be expected to be good ...yet ( fingers crossed ! ) . So any flowers are doubly welcome.
    Nicely secnted this one - used to be a Lc no doubt.

    Very pretty. With cattleyas I always like contrasting colors. I had the same problem with my vandas hanging over my cattleyas. Now I move my 20 vandas every morning to water them and then put them back. It's a lot of trouble but my cattleyas don't have the fungus problems that they had before.

    Very elegant, such clean colors, yet with contrast they create such a colorful magic.

    Ah - sounds a good idea - the problem is that I have 500 or more hanging over the benches... so not practical for me.

    I have a similar issue with the plants hanging below my vandas that require much more water than everything else. These blooms are really pretty.

    cheers,

    Well, the RHS says this one is now a Laeliocatarthron-say that fast three times. (used to be a Dialaeliocattleya-the Laelia is L. albida)
