About 1 year ago I took over the job of taking care of a cattleya that my husband had bought 6 years ago (and had neglected it). I repotted it (first time it was repotted) and started giving it proper care.
After repotting the Cattleya started growing new strong roots. This summer it grew 3 new leaves and there is a little now that shows that another leaf is ready to grow. 3 old leaves died after the new ones had grown.
Right now it has 4 leaves and a strong root system. Now I am hoping to make it bloom next so I could finally identify the plant.
What does a Cattleya need to start to bloom? Is it too early to make it bloom??? Does Cattleya need special care in the winter??
I hope that someone can help me with those questions
