    Red face Pseudo-bulb?

    ?, on a catt., are new p-bulb growths all kinda plump with some small leaves comming out? or are they/some, small skinney things? I have some of these skinney things growing and I don't dare think they could be a sheath - or could they? Thanks

    New growths come from the base of the plant. Sheaths develop from the between (middle) of the leaves on a mature growth. Except for Cat. walkeriana which often spikes from the base.
