Introducing Blc. Akiko Sato, a stunning hybrid between Blc. Kristi Yamaguchi and Blc. Volcano Jewel 'Volcano Queen' mericlone. This color changing cattleya mericlone is a true showstopper with its unique coloration and captivating fragrance.

The flowers of Blc. Akiko Sato open with a mesmerizing blend of greenish hues and a deep peach overlay. As the flowers mature, the peach color intensifies, creating a visually striking display. The semi-spade lip adds an extra touch of elegance with its bright fuchsia shade. Each inflorescence boasts several beautiful blooms, ensuring a bountiful and enchanting floral showcase.

One of the most remarkable aspects of Blc. Akiko Sato is the color transformation it undergoes throughout its bloom cycle. Initially, the flowers exhibit freckled petal tips and a cluster of fragrant cinnamon-colored blooms. However, as the blooms progress, the colors deepen, revealing vibrant red-orange undertones that become increasingly prominent. This gradual shift in color adds a dynamic and captivating element to the plant.

Blc. Akiko Sato is a summer-blooming, bifoliate orchid, ensuring a burst of color and fragrance during the warmer months. With its near-blooming size, this orchid is ready to dazzle in a 5" pot. Having been recently repotted about 1-2 years from bloom, this mericlone is well-established and poised to thrive in its new environment.

To cultivate Blc. Akiko Sato successfully, provide it with bright, indirect light to encourage optimal growth and blooming. Moderate watering is recommended, allowing the potting medium to dry slightly between waterings to prevent overhydration. During the active growing season, fertilize regularly with a balanced orchid fertilizer to support healthy foliage and vibrant blooms.

With its striking colors, captivating fragrance, and robust growth habit, Blc. Akiko Sato is a must-have addition to any orchid enthusiast's collection. Prepare to be captivated by the beauty of this extraordinary hybrid and enjoy the pleasure of witnessing its stunning blooms unfurl in all their glory.
