No flower.Some new growth.It is in brick and charcoal medium.
PLease let me know how to care for it and how to make it flower.Thanking in advance Dev.
Dev, what has been working for me is light, very bright light (far more than standard Cattleya hybrids require), and warm temps. I also keep it tight in the pot, in other words, I could almost say that the pot is too little for the plant size. I also avoid repotting it often. It seems to me that this is a trait inherited from B. nodosa, which, in my experience, also doesn't like being repotted often. All the rest is the same you would do for Cattleya Alliance hybrids.
Hope that helps.
