Catasteum Orchid Care Guide

Catasetums require plenty of water during their growth phase and need complete winter rest. During winter dormancy, keep them dry and start watering when a new growth comes up.

  Light

Catasetums Orchids thrives in bright indirect light. Learn more about light here 

 Watering

Catasetums require plenty of water during their growth phase.  This starts in spring when new growths appear with the onset of the pre-monsoon showers.  Watering should be gradually increased and they should be mature by the end of the monsoon.  Once the pseudobulbs are mature, watering should be reduced in autumn and tapered down until they start dropping their leaves which is an indication that water should be withheld completely except occasionally to prevent shrinking of their pseudobulbs.  It is at this time that they will come into bloom.
