Cattleya dowiana | Self-Watering & Leca Care | Dry Mediterranean Climate #CareCollab



#Cattleyadowiana #SelfWateringLeca #CentralAmerica
Reputed to be a FINICKY / FUSSY #orchid in this video, I explain how I grow my Cattley dowiana in conditions that are not conducive to it’s liking for most of the year. When the humidity is high enough, my temperatures are too low for it’s liking. When the temperatures are perfect for what it likes, then I have no humidity at all! This video proves, it can be done… and no, I do not see any fuss in the years that I have been growing my 2 Cattleya dowianas.
