    Default Cattleya walkeriana fma flamea 'Tokutsu' -S

    1st flowering of this m/clone for me. Haven't achieved the heavy flaring on the segments like the sales pics show. No-one else seems to have done it either, some just a plain colour, not even a mark.
    This has only been open a few days, might pick up the extra colour.

    Still nice Roy. I have three walkeriana. A small seedling and two divisions, both acquired this year. So far they have refused to show any signs of growth besides roots, those are doing quite well. I have been doing a light watering each morning on the advice of the grower but am thinking of doing a really good soaking instead. They are in small clay pots with a few stones and chunks of maple bark. I just think that in a window environment rather than greenhouse they need more water. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    I have 3 walkeriana's & I grow them in my Cattleya bark, 15mm size & they do fine. I water & feed them exactly the same. The one thing they do need is a lot of light, more than the Catts.
    I was given 2 small C. nobilior seedling with instructions to pot them into larger bark than I would do for the size of pot, 50mm or the roots will rot. I put them in my fine bark for seedling Catts & the roots are fine, growing out the drain holes.
    None of my plants stay wet or dry out for more than a day or two. That's my method anyway.

    Thank you, on that note I think I'm going to put a little more and smaller medium in the pots and try giving them a good soaking in the mornings. They are in a west facing window that the glass is open on, so just the screen. That's my brightest window.
