Hi... Just letting you know that the cattleya seedling in the second pic is very much overpotted... And sphagnum may be too wet for it to grow in.. You should not cover the pseudobulbs of cattleyas when potting, or they will rot and die. Catts do much better in small pots.

Yup, agree. The plant you bought is a seedling. Think it will take quite a while for it to reach maturity. You should plant it in the smallest pot you can find, even a 3 inch is a bit too big for it. Maybe you should get flowering size orchids in the future, it is not easy to keep these seedlings well. Having a mature plant will allow you to see results much faster, and spur you on in this hobby. :)/>

When i was there, this is the only BLC hybrid left.

They do have Den hybrids though like Den. Stephanie Sun, Den. Amitabh Barchan and a lot more.

Re-potted the BLC, i hunt around my house for the smallest pot but to no avail. So i have to uproot one of the emersed Cryptocoryne hudoroi to give way to the BLC.

I would appreciate if someone advise me if the re-potting is ok....thanks

Looking better now.. Could you position the plant in the centre of the pot, rather than at one side..? Or are there roots occupying the other side of the pot..?

There's a long piece of root that goes round the pot....

Yes, some part gets direct sun for 2-4 hours in the evening. That is where I grow the BLCs. The rest of the area are bright shaded area.
