I've heard those are hard to grow. Any culture tips?

Nothing special.I have grown catts for many years .My experience is that catts do not tolerate overwatering.They like high humidity, very good air movement and much light.I use peters fertilizzer, 500 uS every waterings( once per week in summer and once per 2 weeks in winter)media is bark, 25 mm, orchiata.

Are they scented? I think most cattleya's are.
