Cultivating Tips:

  1. Light: Provide bright, indirect sunlight to encourage robust growth and prolific blooming. Avoid direct sunlight, especially during the hottest parts of the day.
  2. Temperature: Maintain daytime temperatures between 70-85°F (21-29°C) and nighttime temperatures around 55-65°F (13-18°C). A slight drop in temperature at night helps stimulate flower production.
  3. Humidity: Cattleyas thrive in humidity levels of around 50-70%. To achieve this, consider placing the orchid on a humidity tray filled with water and pebbles or use a room humidifier.
  4. Watering: Water your Cattleya orchid thoroughly when the potting mix is nearly dry. Avoid letting the roots sit in water as this can lead to rot. A well-draining orchid mix is essential for healthy root growth.
  5. Fertilization: Feed your orchid with a balanced orchid fertilizer diluted to half-strength every 2-3 weeks during the growing season. Reduce fertilization frequency during the dormant period.
  6. Potting: Repot your Cattleya orchid every 1-2 years using a fresh orchid potting mix. Choose a pot that allows for adequate drainage and provides ample space for the roots to grow.
