Catasetum Orchid Care: Growing, Dormancy, Watering, Fertilizing, Reblooming, Repotting

This orchid tutorial is about Catasetum Orchid Care. These very easy to grow orchids have a distinct growing cycle and a dormant cycle. In the growing period, catasetum orchids require tremendous amounts of water and fertilizing, reason for which semi hydro with self watering pots works the best for me.
In their dormancy period, catasetum orchids require very little water, if at all.
The light these orchids require is very easy to provide, about 2500-3500 fc is considered to be enough.
Reblooming this orchids is very easy. Most of them will push up a spike at the end of their growing season, before loosing their leaves or sometimes soon after that.
Watering and fertilizing catasetums is the key to grow and rebloom this orchids succesfully. I use 150 ppm of N at every watering.
Repotting Catasetum orchids is best to be done just as their new growth appears. Here is how
