    Default Cattleya mossiae in bud

    Couple Catts are starting to bloom now.
    C. mossiae coerulea. Not the best bloom but I am happy because I was able to save the plant (better to say a small part of it) after Black Rot.




    C. mossiae s/a (‘Carburo’ x ‘Manantial No 1’), third blooming

    I'm glad you saved it, Natali! It's BEAUTIFUL. Question: have you ever tried bleach nine parts water/one part bleach & a toothbrush? It works great! Betty

    If you speak about the limestone spots they are easy to clean with a bit of citrus juice - lime, lemon etc. I usually do it before I bring my plants for judging or other events (our club meetings etc). Otherwise, I don't care. We have a lot of calcium in our water, so foliage gets white spots very fast and very soon.
