This particular type of plant is a hybrid. A cross was made between two different Cattleyas. The two photos shown are the parents in this cross. Left is the mother and right is the father. Each plants' bloom will be a surprise. Just as with children, the bloom will resemble either parent or a combination of both. No two will look alike. You'll receive a truly unique plant and blossom.
This orchid is planted in a 5 1/2” pot and will produce 4-5” blooms. Cattleyas are often annual bloomers. This variety can bloom during different seasons of the year. However, Cattleyas tend to bloom during the fall. 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.
