Sounds good! Glad that the nutricte works and is good for the plant. I have put some more in based on size of plant and instructions. I also watered it again today. Itís got a humidity tray at bottom of ceramic pot too.

It is pretty dang wet now. I can see all the roots at the bottom of the clear pot are REALLT growing lol! Looking like snakes! Iíll take a picture. I think I mentioned itís in a sphagnum moss and bark combo mix. I have it stratified in layers. Bottom has moss, middle bark, moss, bark. Bark is on top.

I have also moved to the east facing window. Hopefully that helps.

Will the curled leaves correct themselves after the adjustments?

Usually leaf issues don't correct themselves. But the nice thing about Catasetinae is that they reinvent themselves every year. Since you are already well into the growing season, the new regimen may or may not lead to blooming this year, but it will lead to a healthier plant which will be likelier to bloom next year. Orchids teach patience!

I definitely recommend getting this one outside if you can! They loooooove the heat and will explode with growth if you water every day and add a tray or plate below it collect water.
