    Very beautiful. I have cathcartii, but the plant is only about 8" tall and leaf is about 4-5" long. I doubt the plant is old enough to bloom, but it been growing under intermediate condition. How big is your plant?

    Hi Lanhua, I've bought a cathcartii today (it'll arrive next week). Can I ask you some growing tips? Temps, light, rest period..
    Thank you!

    I'm keeping my plant in my greenhouse. Also down to 12 degree, during the winter time and not to much water. It need cool and dry during this period. From March on, you can water more and more. Sommer time, a little bit shadow and temp. up to 35 degree.
