Monnierara Millennium Magic 'Witchcraft' high new growth
Default Monnierara Millennium Magic 'Witchcraft' high new growth

I've just received a Monnierara Millennium Magic 'Witchcraft', my first catasetum type, and I'm at a bit of a loss as to what to do with it - it has a small new growth, but it's very high up on the old pseudobulb.

I've seen advice on repotting them horizontally across the surface of the media so roots from the new growth will go straight down to it, but I'm not sure how to do that with this plant, which has multiple pseudobulbs. Could I cut this one off to do that? Or if cutting this one off would be OK, could I just cut it close to the new growth and repot it in the normal, vertical way?

Alternatively, would it be viable to wait for the new growth to develop and grow substantial roots while still attached, then remove it from the pseudobulb and pot it separately?

Finally, I'm a little concerned because the new growth is damaged (second photo); it looks like something might have taken a bite out of it. Is this problematic, or is there a chance it'll continue to grow despite the damage?

Thanks in advance!

If it were me, I'd water the plant and let it stay wet and warm for a few days to fatten those back bulbs. Then I'd pot it horizontally, as you mentioned. You can tie the bulbs together so they fit into a notch you cut into the side of the pot. I've got several Cycnoches like that right now.

If those leaves keep getting longer from that little outgrowth, then it will be absolutely fine.

They haven't grown any more yet, but fingers crossed. It has decided to put out another growth, though - even higher up - so hopefully at least one of them will work out.
