These plants are clones, which means the bloom will look like sample photo.
Most Cattleyas will give off a bud with 2 blooms. Sometimes they only form a single bud. In these instances, we will offer the option to purchase them at a reduced price because of the single flower. There is no difference in the overall health and quality of the plant.
- Plant Stage: With Buds/Blooms
- Blooms life expectancy: Up to 3 weeks

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.

Received plant with 1 bud/sheath on October 9. No blooms yet but plant is healthy.
Absolutely amazed at how pristine my order was upon arrival. The orchids were wrapped beautifully preserving not only the leaves but the live blooms! I will be ordering more in the future!
