Catasetum

Catasetum I like the article

Watering CatasetumTenere Umido
We suggest watering pretty often and regularly, with 1-2 glasses of water ; we should always wait for the soil to be clearly dry between one watering and the other. During this time of year usually it is necessary to irrigate every 1-2 weeks . To moisten the soil of the orchids homogenously we can water them by immersion, soaking the vases up to the edge in demineralized water, and leaving it until the top part of the substratum is moist; let's drain the excess water and then put the containers back in place.

Exposure CatasetumPosizione mezza ombra
Locate this plant in a partially shady place, where it can receive the sunrays during the coolest hours of the day. The Catasetum needs a minimum temperature superior to 15°C, during this time of the year it is best to check the night temperatures before setting it outside.We suggest avoiding exposing orchids to direct sunlight, although they should be placed in a very bright location.

Generalities Catasetum
The Catasetum develops like a shrub. The ramifications of these plants tend to develop downwards. This plant in the autumn assumes a yellowpurplepink colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 60 cm high. It keeps its leaves in the winter.

Treatments Catasetum
If we notice the presence of cochineals or of other insects we can practice a treatment based on mineral oil or other insecticide, being careful to vaporize only the foliage.

Soil Catasetum
Locate in a soil for orchids, not too drained.
