Trying to save my Catasetum Orchids with rotten pseudobulbs
Today we look at a bit of a fail when it comes to good orchid culture.. my Catasetum type orchids 🙁
🦋 More info below! 🦋
Catasetum type orchids were once quite the rage in orchid collections, not so much recently as I see. I do really like the ones I have, buoneec thing I dislike is their size when in active growth. So I tried to declutter my greenhouse last year and grow them outside year round.. not a good idea!
