Cultivating Tips:

  1. Light Requirements: Provide bright, indirect light to encourage healthy growth and flowering. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the delicate foliage.

  2. Watering: Maintain a consistent watering schedule, allowing the potting mix to dry slightly between waterings to prevent root rot. Water thoroughly, ensuring that excess water drains away to avoid waterlogged roots.

  3. Humidity: Cattleyas thrive in moderately high humidity. Consider placing a humidity tray filled with water and pebbles beneath the pot to increase humidity levels around the plant, especially in drier environments.

  4. Temperature: Keep temperatures moderate to warm, ideally between 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C) during the day and slightly cooler at night. Avoid exposure to cold drafts or sudden temperature fluctuations.

  5. Air Circulation: Ensure good air circulation around the plant to prevent fungal issues and promote vigorous growth. Use a small fan to gently move air around the plant, especially in humid conditions.

  6. Fertilization: Feed your Cattleya Sea Breeze 'Blue Ribbon' HCC/AOS regularly during the growing season with a balanced orchid fertilizer diluted to half strength. Reduce or suspend fertilization during the plant's dormant period.
