    I have 2 others that didn't bloom but I believe it was my fault for watering too soon in the spring. The new roots were not long enough when I started watering.
    Harvey, do you leave the plant in the media over the winter or take them out?

    So far, leave it in the media. That's what Fred Clarke recommends I think. Then repot once the new growth begins if repotting is needed.

    Fred Clarke knows what he is talking about but my question is how can you tell if the roots of the new growth are long enough to start watering if most of the roots are below the media. For me I can see how long the roots are before I repot and water.

    The new growth is high enough that there is a gap between its bottom and the media. Fred does suggest doing the repot just before the new roots emerge (to avoid damaging them). I didn't repot last year but will this year. I'll let you know how it goes.

    Nice flower ... I agree that sphagnum moss is best to grow them well. Gave me 3 large flowers.

    Regarding catasetums.. (in my experience)

    I dont have any success in media of sphagnum, they usually die on me. I dont know why but maybe its my environment.

    But i took a chance of placing them in SH with pumice and leca. Strangely....they survived! And even gave me several babies.
