    Great idea Geoff. Thanks for the pictures. I will try this with my cattleyas too.

    You have a beautiful Greenhouse. The roots on that first cattleya are awesome. Good growing.

    How and how often do you water your mounted Cattleyas? I'm asking sinceI've just tried the same with a couple of my C's in my cabinet.

    IN the summer ( between the two equinoxes) pretty well every day. When we have that very rare thing in UK - a heat wave - as often as I can ! In the winter - every other day perhaps , but I am not too fussy. If I am away for a week between October and February I am happy to leave them alone unsprayed. If longer, I get someone to do them a couple of times a week. In the summer, if I am away, my "locum" will do them 4 or 5 times in the week.

    10.5 long . 4.5 wide, almost 3 high from the sunken floor to the top. These dimensions are in meters - so 35 x 15 x 10 feet.

    Awesome setup, both in plants, and the green house itself. What type of limbs are you using, just local limbs or some purchased from somewhere else?
