Is it time to separate this cattleya community pot (compot)? Female
Default Is it time to separate this cattleya community pot (compot)?

Hello all!

I got this compot of Blc. Copper Queen recently. Iíve seen online that a lot of people divide up the community pots right away. Iím not sure if I should divide these now or if I should wait until next spring which will be 6 months from now. They are not exactly huge.

I live in warm Texas and the cattleya in my home are still growing roots and new sheaths. I guess they donít anticipate the cold coming?

I am concerned with how close together these are. Also the medium may not work in my climate. If they keep growing at this rate, by spring next year, they will be way too hard to separate.

I'm thinking that if you have room you might as well go ahead and separate them into smaller groups maybe of 2 or 3 plants in smaller pots. They look very nice.

I'd divide now, instead of anticipating the tangle of roots you'll face in the spring.

I separated the compot last night. It came out to about 40 seedlings. I managed to fit them all into this 25 pot tray. I stuck a few left along with some that didnít look like they were gonna live into the pot they arrived in. I have other cattleya in only sphag so I donít have an issue using moss only.
