I just got some Cattleya orchids when my mother divided hers for the first time (in about ten years!). She doesn't pay too much attention to them and they always flower beautifully, so she doesn't know too much about them. I potted them about two weeks ago in bark and have kept them in shady conditions since then, waiting for them to take hold, or whatever they need to do before I put them in a little brighter place. I have watered them about once a week. Is that too much or too little?
When can I move them to brighter conditions? I don't see much (if any) new growth and here and there one of the pseudobulbs (along with the leaf) in a clump is turning yellow.
Haaaalp! Am I doing some or every thing wrong?
