    Cattleya dowiana var aurea cleaned up for repot. Potted in s/h too soon, and wasn't sure it would last until new roots sprouted. Has new roots and growing 'eye'. Should do fine.

    The new product is actually better, but some objected to the change.

    That product
    Ray, can you pm me on what that new type is called, and where it may be obtained? Mahalo.
