The dorsal can be trained with a tag taped behind lightly with painter tape (low sticky tape) or titling flower forward for a couple days. This depends on the thickness or substance of the dorsal. A thinner floppy dorsal is best by tilting. A thicker heavier dorsal needs more encouragement with the tape lol.Leslie, I know how to train a bud to present well, but what is your technique for training a dorsal?
I think that size is a wonderful trait to have in a Cattleya... BUT.... a straight dorsal gives it that regalness.Leslie, I'm far too picky about Catt. dorsals. It's an idiosyncrasy I'm trying to overcome.
Long ago I don't remember seeing so many reflexing dorsals as I see now. I'm a lot
older than you and have seen more absolutely perfect Catts in private collections.
