I feel your pain. I got a Cattleya orchid in the mail about a month ago...when it arrived it looked like a full, healthy plant that had previous bloomed several times over. I unpotted it only to find it broken apart into about 3 sections, the biggest part having only 3 pseudobulbs and a few healthy roots to speak of. The other parts had no roots and weren't worth the effort to save (nor do I have the space for 3 of the exact same plant). The part I did save is throwing out roots and a new growth, but this so called "blooming sized" Cattleya will obviously not bloom again for quite some time. Very frustrating.
