Default Sick Cattleya with rot bulbs

Hello everyone:
I have a cattleya, which I had transplanted 2 weeks ago and now it is rotting bulbs, they look yellow and the leaves fall green, I cut them and also cut a piece of the rhizome that is rotten, I put cinnamon but I have fear of losing it, she has been in the garden and a lot of rain has fallen, what else can I do? I appreciate your advice. Greetings.

Hi Merita, in this case, I think a picture or two to see what is going on will allow myself and other members to provide more specific help.

This plant was bought in good nursery along with others, I transplanted all of them and I watch them for the continuous rains. The ones that I have grown from small, that are from Better Gro have never had problems because they are already acclimated and they make beautiful blooms, they are warriors, they endure the cold, the rains, the bites of insects and more. With the ones I buy from nurseries, I'm not lucky, and I would not always want to wait a year and a half to see the flower of a cattleya that I like.

From your pictures, the wrinkling in the pseudobulbs indicates to me that either 1) they aren't getting enough water or 2) the roots are rotting. Given that you said you've had a lot of rain, I would possibly unpot to take a look at the roots and make sure they they aren't rotting away. If the roots look good, I would make sure that they are potted back up in a good, airy mix. It's hard to tell from the pictures, but I would also venture to say that the container that is planted in is too big for the plant right now (which can add to being too wet). Most cattleyas want to have very "tight feet" in that they love to be root-bound in the pot and only step up to the next size once they start to outgrow the one they have. It may not hurt to give a treatment with a fungicide or Inocucor (available from Ray at firstrays.com, seems to have a lot of good reviews here on the OB) to help make sure that things within the potting mix are in balance and increase plant vigor. I would probably keep this either in the house or in a sheltered area away from the rain for a little bit- some "babying" may be needed in the short term to nurse it back. Hopefully that helps..

Thank you for your advice, I know that the basket should not be so big but as always I have done so and it has given me results so I put these in baskets too. I have it on the porch to take care of it more closely and I'm using the inoculation, but since the substrate is so humid, I'm afraid to put more water. I also sprayed them with physan 20, a few days ago. My fear is that this spread because I have some that are opening flowers, I put pictures for you to see how beautiful they are, they are sprouted from the ones that speak to you: Toshie Aoki and Akito Sato who is still opening flowers. Greetings.
