CATTLEYA ORCHID - Knowledgebase Question

Question by MISTYCALANGE

I just bought a cattleya orchid. I've seen people growing orchids attached to a tree outdoors, and they look beautiful. Can I do that and if so what are the basics I need to know to so I can get a helthy plant and flowers. I appreciate your advise. Thanks.

Cattleyas can be grown in a cool shaded ourdoor location. The following web sites give great information on growing orchids.
