Flowering of my RLC.  Toshie Aoki Pizza Female
Default Flowering of my RLC. Toshie Aoki Pizza

My Toshie Aoki Pizza was transplanted in April for an emergency. I crossed my fingers because I knew that this cattleya takes out the roots after it blooms. The new growths came with roots and its flowering was as always in the month of August.

Nice photos!

When you mentioned that this plant 'takes out' the roots after it blooms ...... does this mean that the roots are known to perish after flowering?

No, I want to say that the new growths, those that bloom in this cattleya, take roots when they finish flowering, and in my case, I had just transplanted to the plant, it could die or survive with the roots it had, many cattleyas they lose almost all their roots in the transplant, I was lucky and mine took root along with the new pseudobulbs, something that is not very common here.

I see! I think the general procedure under circumstances like that - assuming the portion of plant has no roots, but has pseudobulb that just happens to be flowering - is to increase chances of survival by cutting off the flower spike.

But it's definitely nice to hear that things panned out well in this case.

Yes, that would have been logical, but the new pseudobulbs were so small that I decided to leave them, I had already lost one in the transplant and had broken the rhizome unintentionally, I can only say that I was lucky. Greetings.
