    Thanks Catty. I did not have any cattleyas until recently. An old friend, late eighties, asked me to look at her orchid. It was in a very large pot and badly needed dividing and repotting which I did for her. It was in beautiful condition with a really strong root system. She feeds it monthly. Of course I got a couple of plants for myself. Looking forward to seeing it bloom.

    Just in case it was a misunderstanding and not a typo, the hybrid name is Shelob, with an L rather than an I.

    Thanks for that Raybark. I copied it from the stick and it was not too clear.
