    I have a cattelya that has been extremely healthy until recently. It flowers twice a year beautiful purple flowers. However now it's leaves are curling in on themselves. Can anyone suggest what the problem may be?

    If you can take some pictures of the plant someone might be able to help.

    Bad root system. The fact that you have a fair population of terrestrial weeds in the pot is a dead giveaway. Time for repot and rehab.
