This particular clone, C. Earl 'Imperialis' FCC/AOS is at a mature blooming stage. The parental cross for this clone is C. Empress Bells x C. General Patton. This orchid is planted in a 5 1/2” pot and will produce 4-5.5” blooms as shown in the product photo. Cattleyas are often annual bloomers. This variety tends to be a fall bloomer. However, it is always possible for it to bloom out of season. This plant is NOT currently in bud or flowering now. 

General orchid care for Cattleyas include a temperature range of 75-85F during the day and 60F at night. 40-60% humidity is recommended. Bright, shaded light south-east or south-west exposure. Check the media and water only when dry (about 1-2 times/week). We recommend fertilizing with a high phosphorus & potassium slow release blend to develop big blooms. As with all orchids, good air movement is essential. Repot these mature size orchids every 2 years.

Growing instructions are included with every order. Contact us daily via email or phone for additional care questions or concerns.
