Laeliocatonia Renata 'S&W' HCC/AOS

It has an inventory number but the information was not in the database as to when or where I got it. I seem to have got side-tracked before completing the paper work. And I have come to appreciate having notes and pictures over the time I had the plant.

The plant has mealy bugs on it. I don't see many mealy bugs since I got rid of the ants but they show up once in awhile. I can't do a real cleaning of the plant while it is in bloom but I can get rid of the visible bugs. Once it is finished blooming I will un-pot it, remove all the brown parts and generally clean it for re-potting. Then an all-over bath in tepid soapy water, a rinse and an all-over spray with the Ortho.

  1. Laeliocatonia Renata's petals, sepals and lip look so soft and the lip so vibrant. So beautiful. Oh yes, the photos and notes are so important. Learning from your blog every day. Thanks for sharing.
