    Default Growing Cattleya outside?

    My cattleya has been doing extremely well under artificial lights for the winter. It has been growing new shoots through out the season. The weather now is warming with the lows in the mid 50's and the highs in the mid 70's. I've read that Catts do well outside. What would be the best time to transfer. I have a very small greenhouse which allows for sheltered pm nights. Can any one off some ideas.Name:  IMG_1083.jpg

    I live in Houston, so we have similar weather. Mine orchids have been moved outside already. If you have grown inside under light, you might want to gradually increase light.

    The catt. looks happy and healthy. If it is doing good and happy. I would leave it in the same location where it is doing good unless until the change is compelling. just a thought.
