Are these new pseudo bulbs on Aurantiaca orchid?

last year
last modified: last year

Hi fellow orchid experts: wondering whether you could help me.

I bought my first cattleya orchid (Aurantiaca) in January this year. The plant was a bit too big and almost fell out of the pot. So after blooming I decided to repot it. And turned out, the root had been cut and there were 2 separate plants. I noticed the flower spikes were all on one plant. So I potted them separately.

Yesterday I noticed there are a bump on either plant. And I'm wondering (and hoping) whether these could be new growth? pseudo bulb maybe?

We are at end of spring and getting warmer temperature now. I have been putting them out during the day and will leave them outside in a couple weeks hopefully.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Thank you very much and happy gardening!
