    tried that several times. sometimes get [attach] blah blah blah but nothing else. Accordng to video you hit attachment button again, but that only bring you back to photo manager. I'm giving up.

    If you get [attach] some words or numbers here[/attach] then it is working. You need to submit the post.

    Default Wrinkled cattlyea pods?

    I followed advise given previous and have plant on sphagnum. Any more ideas?

    I meant put the plant in damp sphagnum which will give the plant some humidity--I may be wrong put your pic looks like you have just placed the plant on top of dry sphagnum.

    Sphagnum was damp when I first did it. now I am spraying with water daily. Let me know if I should be doing anything differently.

    Everyone on this forum is here to help. You cant do much more than keep it in a decent light, give it a little spray ( as you are doing ) a warm environment and don't water until you see new roots developing from the rhizome. Patience and more patience should bring you the result you desire.

    Hi moniluhum. Thought this pic might put your mind at rest. Three months ago I was throwing this Cattleya away. I decided to do the method I have posted in this thread. On the pic you can see the wrinkled pseudobulbs and some dead roots and also two new growths. So don't give up hope on your plant. Hope this helps you in some way--good luck
