Introducing the breathtaking Cattleya Taichung Beauty, a mesmerizing hybrid born from the union of Rhyncholaeliocattleya Pamela Finney and Rhyncholaeliocattleya Elegant Dancer. Prepare to be enchanted by its extravagant beauty and ease of cultivation.

At the heart of this botanical marvel are its outrageously large 8-inch soft lavender flowers, adorned with delicate petals and a strikingly large lip. Imagine the spectacle of these majestic blooms gracing your living space, commanding attention with their sheer size and captivating hues.

Cattleya Taichung Beauty is not only a feast for the eyes but also a joy to cultivate. Here are some expert tips to ensure its optimal growth and blooming:

  1. Light: Provide bright, indirect light for at least 6-8 hours a day. A south or east-facing window is ideal, ensuring your Cattleya receives the light it craves for robust growth and prolific flowering.

  2. Temperature: Maintain moderate to warm temperatures between 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C) during the day and a slight drop at night. This mimics its natural habitat, encouraging healthy growth and flowering.

  3. Humidity: Cattleyas thrive in high humidity environments. Aim for humidity levels of 50-70% by using a humidifier or placing the plant on a humidity tray filled with water and pebbles. Regular misting can also help.

  4. Watering: Water your Cattleya Taichung Beauty thoroughly when the potting medium is nearly dry. Allow excess water to drain away to prevent waterlogged roots, which can lead to rot. During the growing season, water more frequently but reduce watering slightly during the dormant period.

  5. Potting Medium: Use a well-draining orchid mix consisting of bark, perlite, and charcoal. Repot your Cattleya every 1-2 years to refresh the potting medium and accommodate its growing root system.

  6. Fertilization: Feed your Cattleya Taichung Beauty with a balanced orchid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 2-4 weeks during the growing season. Reduce or suspend fertilization during the dormant period to allow the plant to rest.

This is a blooming size imported bare root orchid division; newly repotted in a 4" pot; about 1 to 2 years to bloom; Grown from seed; Limited!

With proper care and attention, your Cattleya Taichung Beauty will reward you with an extravagant display of its exquisite blooms, transforming your space into a haven of botanical splendor.
