    Default Eplc Mae Bly

    Just purchased a bag baby with this tag last night. Anything in particular I should know about its care? I assume it's like most other hybrid catts. Looked fairly healthy in its tiny pot. One newer growth and a couple of very small p-bulbs.

    Well, it has been renamed for starters. It is now: Cattleychea Mae Bly (Prosthechea mariae x Cattleya Ann Follis)

    Here is some culture information for you, Ali, taken from Orchid wiz.

    LIGHT:
    Ctyh. Mae Bly is composed of species of which 92% take medium light and 74% take high light. Grow this hybrid in dappled light to bright indirect light conditions.

    TEMP:
    Ctyh. Mae Bly is composed of species of which 100% take warm temperatures, 67% take cool temperatures and 33% take hot temperatures. Grow this hybrid in cool to warm conditions, or 58°F to 75°F at night. It may be tolerant of hot (75°F to 85°F) night temperatures.

    WATER/MEDIUM/FERTILIZER:
    50%-60% humidity. Mature plants MUST dry out between waterings. Grow in a pot with a porous, free-draining media. Fertilize weekly, weakly (one quarter to half the normal dose). Common media: fir bark, tree-fern fiber, expanded clay, lava rock, charcoal or a combination.

    I hope this helps!

    cheers,
    BD
