    Like the soft green, and the contrast orange colors.

    I tried one Catasetum last year, and it didn't take that long for me to kill that poor thing.

    for starters i recon using charcoal or bark mix, avoid sphag moss and most important of all, always recognize the dormant phase of catasetums where they need rest, minimal watering as well.

    i had not deflasked any catasetums before, but i had bought some that had just been out of the flask shortly. i keep them in sphag or charcoal (up to your choice).
    basically you need to rinse of all the media off the roots, then spray them with antifungal of your choice, some people plant them immediately, some will spread them over a tray with holes, then covered them with a layer of plastic, then open it up 3-4 times a day for aeration. the function of the plastic is to keep the humidity high, creating a transition phase for the plants to reduce shock.

    but my preferred media is always charcoal/bark chips, but very important not to over pot them, they strive better in smaller pots. some people even plant several plants together in a medium pot. really up to your choice. catasetums seedlings are easy to grow, with optimal cultivation, they can begin to flower a year after deflasking.
