After you divide a cattleya does the older portion start to grow again or what happens to it?
If you're talking about a "back bulb division", look at were the new growth will emerge. If it still looks like the bulb can support a growth or if the "eyes" are still viable then it is likely that you could produce another division.
Yes, the older portions will grow new growths if there are dormant growing points or "eyes" on the old pseudobulbs. I don't have much experience with Catts but I'm sure someone here will give their advice. In the mean time, here is a site that might help. http://www.backbulb.com/index.asp

i'd use the sphaqnum in a bag method. keep it out of the light, you don't want to cook it, open the bag up fairly often to let in fresh air, then reseal, and try to keep the humidity up without rotting the plant. good luck, bob
