I'd leave them there for at least a few weeks (up to a month) and some light is needed. We want to tell them its winter, not night! lol

Can you plunge them into freezing cold temps at night (i.e. 50 degrees) to really show them who's boss?

Seems like a lot early risers this year, not just in the southern USA. Amazing how these plants read seasonal cues similarly in many different parts of the world.

A lot of my Catasetums are waking up right now. Seems a bit early, but works for me! I made a video about my Catasetinae, their current growth stage, and how I'm caring for them. Enjoy!

I know a lot of growers water slowly at first, but I haven't found it necessary. I pour it on full blast when its time to start watering.

I've got a lot of mine waking up now too. The most important time to keep them dry is not so much the dormancy stage, but rather, the stage where the new roots begin to grow!

Hmmm... my guess would be not enough water at the roots in summer. Your Catasetums and Cycnoches roots shouldn't completely dry during active growth. What type of media are they in?

Also, I don't...

What conditions are you growing? I'm thinking most about temperature (high/low), but it would be good to understand everything (e.g. type of light, day length manipulation, fertilizer, etc).
