BTW - I know these are new, but they look to be potted in sphagnum and appear to be very wet in photo 3. Cattleyas like to dry out between waterings. You might be careful about giving it water until it drys out a bit. Take a toothpick or a match stick and stick down into the sphag as deep as you can to see if it is dry before you water. You could also do the weight test to know when to water. Pick up the pot and feel how heavy it is now while it is wet and freshly watered. Then in a few days, pick it up again. When it is dry, it will have a very different weight. I love the yellow, orange and red bloom.
