    Default Cattleya aclandie

    Cattleya aclandie from Germany.
    It was mounted on the piece of cork but the roots have grown and began to enter the cork.
    I did manually a basket from wood of Robinia pseudoacacia
    I did substrate mixture: small pieces of Sambucus, humus Pine , Quercus and volcanic scorie
    Waiting for suggestions or complaints
    I did well or not?
    Please excuse my english
    Thank you in advance!

    I don't grow this species Simo but I feel it would do better mounted. There is no harm if the root enters the cork.

    Thank you for advice!Little Cattleya is J3,the piece of cork it is small.
    When he reached me,he had nothing on the piece of cork. I put a little substrate coniferous forest ,between the piece of cork and roots
    and liked, gave more roots

    I did not put much substrate in basket.
    I will post pictures of her evolution (I hope to be evolving)

    mounted looks nice. if the mounted piece is overgrown then just fix the small mount on a larger mount. if you have already put in a basket , keep checking the roots. One advantage with mounted orchids is that you can get to see the health of the roots. Keep us posted on how it goes

    Essence present in my collection, currently is maturing the bud, aesthetically I think yours is a valid solution, but Cattleya aclandie is the root system very delicate, easy to root rot, I think you have done well to take it off the cork composite, with time tends to deteriorate and may cause damage to the plant, but personally I would have preferred mounted on a cork full, with very little or sphagnum moss, in this way the control of the roots is simpler, oile

    Thank you very much!
    I hope to be ok. It benefits from direct sun and heat.
    I hope to develop better grow faster,to be J1 next year through October (I'm optimista) I will post its development.
