Hi Everyone, my sister from Texas recently sent me some compots of laelia lucasiana. I've been doing a lot of reading, on and off the internet, and the general idea is that rock growing laelias, (or whatever they're newly classified now as) are difficult to grow.
My sister sent these to me in bark, and I was thinking about repotting them into a Leca/Charcol with a little bit of sphag, just a thin layer, but I am really afraid to repot these, because most of what I've read says they hate to be disturbed.
Now, I'm going to repot when new growth starts, is it a good idea to repot them into a sem-permanent home like the materials I just listed?
As well, what temps do these plants enjoy, my sister gives them about 65-86..Is this okay?...I heard they like it cooler, especially during the winter
