CATTLEYAS, MINIATURE: Repotting Procedures Step by step advice for the hesitant. F84-229 0
CATTLEYAS, MINIATURE: Rest After Repotting No rest period is necessary if it is potted at the right season and is placed in a shady, warm and humid spot until properly rooted. A84-367 0
CATTLEYAS, MINIATURE: Seedlings When deflasked into community pots they require slightly more frequent watering, more shade, slightly less fertilizer. A86-815 0
CATTLEYAS, MINIATURE: Sheathing Removal From Pseudobulbs It is recommended at repotting time to remove a sheathing if it is brown or dark, to check for fungi or hiding insects as it is a favorite place for them; treat with an insecticide or miticide and clean with a soft toothbrush. F84-229 0
CATTLEYAS, MINIATURE: Sheaths Dry Out Without Buds Reasons are variable and uncertain but C. mossiae hybrids produce flowers after sheaths dry, they flower fall to spring; if the problem is wide-spread the culture may be faulty; other causes may be too much heat or too dry, too much fertilizer or noxious fumes from a heater. A84-473 0
CATTLEYAS, MINIATURE: Species for 15 related species described as miniatures with 38 hybrids derived from them; refer to W11-205 0

CATTLEYAS, MINIATURE: Under Lights C. trianaei or C. labiata hybrids will not flower if lights are on for more than 14 hours a day so cut the time to 12 hours or less in winter. A84-473The unifoliates turn into bifoliates; normal unifoliates sometimes produce two leaves depending on the hybrid; if they do not flower under lights it is probable that the "day-length" is too long for them.
