I ordered a mystery Cattleya recently from a supplier in Hawaii. It’s easy to find great deals on orchids if you are willing to take a chance on a plant not in bloom, or cuttings/back bulbs from plants. This particular plant at some point got mislabeled/unlabeled, so the seller has no idea what variety it might be. I may have to wait a while to see, however, it was a deal. I’m using my baby Cattleya to mount to cholla wood, as it is the perfect size.

I began by preparing my supplies:
- Cholla wood (mounting substrate)
- Sphagnum moss
- Florist wire
- Cup of water
