I got it from New World Orchids and it was a stunning plant. When I read my conditions would work, I nagged Kristen until I got one.

Why did you think it needed another basket and repotting?

Because Kim told me to. He also suggested the moss. Without his advice I would have left it as it was. But he suggested cutting it out of the old basket first, which I couldn't do. His alternative was this result.

I'm curious as to how this plant is doing now? Did you put it in the bigger basket?

It was lovely when I brought it in this fall. While we slept our now deceased cat chewed up the leaves. They are marred but, functional...so, it looks crappy. However, it has a couple new leaves and roots and has not declined.

I hate green sphagnum moss so, I wrapped sone synthic around the roots. I soak it every other day and it hangs in a south window (dreary Indiana). I think it could use more light but it will have to wait until I change my set up a bit.

So, all that to say, it seems to be doing reasonably well.

Thank you for the update, Dolly! I thought these prefer a more moderate amount of light, like less than high light cattleya. I certainly hope this is the case because I just ordered one and the space I have for it is on the east side of the house!

Sorry to hear about the loss of your cat.

The cat, it was time. East would probably work but, our winters are very over cast. I've heard they'll bloom in Phal light.
