Cultivating Tips for 'Summit Snow' Cultivating Cattleya bowringiana var. alba 'Summit Snow' requires a blend of attention and care to truly thrive. Here are some essential tips to ensure your orchid flourishes:

1. Light: Provide bright, indirect light to mimic its natural habitat. Avoid direct sunlight as it may scorch the delicate petals.

2. Temperature: Maintain a warm to hot environment, emulating its native climate. Daytime temperatures between 70-85°F (21-29°C) and a slight drop at night are ideal.

3. Humidity: This lithophyte thrives in humid conditions. Place a humidity tray nearby or use a humidifier to maintain a humidity level of around 60-70%.

4. Watering: Allow the medium to dry slightly between waterings. Use tepid, distilled water to avoid mineral buildup.

5. Potting Medium: Use a well-draining orchid mix that allows good air circulation around the roots.

6. Fertilization: Feed with a balanced orchid fertilizer during the growing season (spring to summer), reducing frequency in the dormant period.

7. Rest Period: Provide a brief rest period in the winter with reduced watering and fertilizer to encourage blooming.

8. Repotting: Repot every 2-3 years or when the pseudobulbs start overcrowding the pot.

The medium to large-sized pseudobulbs carry 2, rarely 3, dark green, leathery leaves.
