    any advice out there if it is ok for me to grow my future cattleyas outdoor?
    As a general rule you can consider:
    1) Night temperature around and over 10ēC are no problem for most Cattleya hybrids.
    2) By night temperatures in between 3 to 10ēC it is recommended to keep the roots dry. Protect the plant from rain with plastic cover. Water the plants only when the next 2 days the temperature will be over 10ēC.
    3) Below 3ēC is not recommended. Or you have to heat the green house or you have to take the plants in to a warmer environment.

    my potting mix is a hydroton or leca clay and i use semi-hydroponic method which you can't see 2 hold on the side of the pot.the reason that i use this method because i'm the over watering person.i almost kill all of my catts last year that everybody here remember very well so for now some of my orchids are in S/H and some are in mounting ..
