    Default Colmanara Wildcat MASSAI RED

    Yesterday I bought this one. As soon as I got home I repotted it to see if it had this sphagnum ball between the roots that may have. I've lost more than one plant due to this. It didn't have it, but the substrate was quite worn down, so I hope it appreciates the new medium (leca, red lava rock, some bark, perlite).

    This new growth is looking fine. I hope it will mature and bloom for me. Once the rootball untangles, it almost looked like a Vanda. The roots look very healthy and there were hardly any rotten roots.

    One of the lovelier Colmanara, IMO. Nice looking plant and root system too.
