Hi

I recieve a Catopsis yesterday from Witu*a and i just wanna know if someone grow it in sphagnum ?

I know that it is an epiphyte plant so i think it is possible but I don't wanna do a(nother) mistake :( :(

Best Regards,

Martin LE TALLEC

My Catopsis grows in a pot of wet peat and it pretty happy, so I'm fairly sure that it can grow in sphagnum.

I grow Catopsis berteroniana in ajoured pot (like some orchids) with living sphagnum, perlite, fine bark and a little bit of charcoal. This medium is excellent for an epiphyte like it ! But high moisture is needing in this case.
