Introducing the stunning Cattleya Chung Haw Sweet, a captivating hybrid cross between Cattleya loddigesii and Cattleya Mattie Shave. This exquisite orchid variety boasts an enchanting display of colors, with sepals and petals adorned in a rich dark pink-lavender hue, while the lip dazzles with a deep fuchsia outer half and a yellow throat delicately veined with gold.

Cultivating this beauty is a rewarding experience for orchid enthusiasts, and here are some essential tips to ensure its optimal growth and blooming:

  1. Light Requirements: Cattleya Chung Haw Sweet thrives in bright, indirect light. Place it near a south or east-facing window where it can receive ample sunlight without direct exposure.

  2. Temperature and Humidity: Maintain temperatures between 60°F to 80°F (15°C to 27°C) during the day, with a slight drop at night. Keep humidity levels around 50% to 70%, which can be achieved through regular misting or by placing a humidifier nearby.

  3. Watering: Allow the potting mix to dry slightly between waterings, but never let it completely dry out. Water thoroughly when the top inch of the medium feels dry to the touch. Ensure good drainage to prevent waterlogging, as Cattleyas are susceptible to root rot.

  4. Potting Mix: Use a well-draining orchid mix consisting of materials such as bark, perlite, and charcoal. Repotting is typically necessary every 1-2 years to refresh the growing medium and accommodate the orchid's growth.

  5. Fertilization: Feed your Cattleya Chung Haw Sweet with a balanced orchid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 2-3 weeks during the growing season (spring to early fall). Reduce or cease fertilization during the winter months when growth slows down.

  6. Air Circulation: Adequate air circulation is crucial for preventing fungal and bacterial diseases. Place a fan nearby to ensure gentle airflow around the plant.

  7. Blooming: With proper care, Cattleya Chung Haw Sweet will reward you with stunning blooms once or twice a year. Provide a slight reduction in watering and temperature fluctuations during the winter to encourage blooming.
