    Translation: Cattleychea Caribbean Jewel. Cattleychea is the closest thing to Cattleyohea, and that is the only one with Jewel in the name.

    Now known as Proguarleya Caribbean Jewel (Cattlianthe Cynthia Martel Utuado x Prosthechea radiata). You may know Prosthechea radiata as Encyclia radiata. Cattlianthe CMU is mostly Guarianthe (Cattleya) bowringiana, skinneri and aurantiaca with some true Cattleya species in small percentages. General Cattleya hybrid care should be appropriate.

    Myself, I would take it out of the pot, cut off everything that isn't green and dip the rhizome in Kelpmax or perhaps a rooting hormone, let it dry for a week, then put it in a much smaller pot and see what happens.

    Not getting enough moisture. All that sphagnum would likely keep it too wet, and rot the roots. If that is what happened, that would explain why it is not getting the moisture to the p-bulbs - no good roots left.
