Hello Michael,

Thank you for your answer and sorry for the delay, I was away this week-end. So, here is what I did: I took your advice and so I planted the reginae in a big 10 liters plastic pot. I put about 5 cm of baked clay at the bottom of the pot for the drainage, and then filled up the rest of the pot with a mix made of sand (three parts), perlite (two parts), 4 or 5 mms diameter baked clay (two parts) and lime. I used baked clay instead of orchid bark because I couldn’t find some small one. Moreover, I think the bark can acidify the substrate in time. Finally, you said to me not to use fungicide if I wasn’t aware, but another good Cyp grower advised me on my private email box about a good brand and proportionings, so I watered my plant with a professional fungicide called Benlate.

Here you can see my reginae and its root system:

And here is the result :

Is there anything else I can do or should I just wait and see now? 

Best regards
