    Question Catt question

    This is the same catt I was having trouble with before. It's growing new roots now and getting used to the new-new pots, heh. For the longest time I thought that this was a p-bulb. A new one that is, but it's doing some weird stuff that the others didn't do. Can you see how it has been splitting from one side to the other? Is this a new p-bulb or not?

    Alana, it's new pseudobulb, why it's behave like that might be the the light is not enough, sometimes it need to adjust itself according to surrounding.Very healthy root system. Good luck.

    That's a nice new pseudobulb alright. It's looking very normal. New pseudobulbs grow inside a protective sheath that eventually dries and will peel off. The sheathing grows in sections and that's the look of splitting that you see. Great looking root you have there too.
