Have a question regarding the rest periods for Cattleyas - given that their natural habitat in S. America is in the southern hemisphere, I am just wondering if that therefore means that:
Assuming for example purposes a cattleya with a natural winter rest period in the southern hemisphere:
1. Will this therefore translate to it having a natural 'summer' rest period if you were trying to grow it in the northern hemisphere?
2. If the cattleya is grown in the Northern hemisphere long enough, would it always stick with having a 'summer' rest period in the N. hemisphere, or would it eventually swop around back to having a winter rest (for the N. hemisphere) period?
3. Alternatively, is the answer simply based on the temperature differential during the seasons, and accordingly the rest period will just be triggered by whenever it is that such differential matches what the cattleya's natural environment is/was?
Thanks in advance, and hopefully I phrased my questions correctly or in an understandable fashion
