Questions About My First Cattleya Sheath
I just noticed a sheath containing buds coming up on my Blc. Mahina Yahiro Ulii. I'm thrilled because I've had several cattleyas for years but they've never bloomed. I added additional lighting above them and I'm hoping that the others will bloom too.
How long does it take for a cattleya to go from new sheath to blooming? Is there anything that I should or shouldn't do to the plant at this time? The plant is huge, but has only one sheath. Will that likely be the only one, or do others form in succession?
