Now, let's talk cultivation. To ensure the optimal growth and flowering of your Blc. NP Gold 'Monkey Butt', here are some essential tips:

  1. Light: Provide bright, indirect light to mimic the orchid's natural habitat. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

  2. Temperature: Maintain temperatures between 60°F to 80°F (15°C to 27°C) during the day, with a slight drop at night. This mimics the orchid's native conditions and promotes healthy growth.

  3. Watering: Water thoroughly when the potting medium approaches dryness, typically every 5-7 days. Ensure proper drainage to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot.

  4. Humidity: Cattleyas thrive in high humidity environments. Aim for humidity levels of around 50-70%. You can achieve this by placing a humidity tray filled with water near the orchid or by using a humidifier.

  5. Fertilization: Feed your Blc. NP Gold 'Monkey Butt' regularly with a balanced orchid fertilizer diluted to half strength. During the growing season (spring to fall), fertilize every 2-3 weeks, and reduce frequency during the dormant period.
