Product Description:

Guaricyclia Yucatan enchants with its vibrant 2-inch deep purple flowers, adorning strong spikes that rise with unwavering grace.

What's more, its self-supporting spikes ensure that your blooms stand proudly, enhancing any setting with their regal presence.

Cultivation Tips:

  1. Light: Provide bright, indirect light for optimal growth. A south or east-facing window is ideal, ensuring your Epicattleya Yucatan receives ample sunlight without direct exposure that could cause leaf burn.

  2. Temperature: Maintain moderate temperatures ranging from 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C) during the day, with a slight drop at night. Avoid sudden temperature fluctuations, as they can stress the plant.

  3. Humidity: This hybrid thrives in humid conditions similar to its native habitats. Aim for humidity levels between 50% to 70%. Consider using a humidity tray or a room humidifier, especially in drier environments.

  4. Watering: Water your Guaricyclia Yucatan thoroughly when the top inch of the potting medium feels dry to the touch. Ensure proper drainage to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot. During the active growing season, typically spring through fall, increase watering frequency slightly.

  5. Fertilization: Feed your orchid with a balanced orchid fertilizer diluted to half strength every two weeks during the growing season. Reduce fertilization during the winter months when growth slows down.

  6. Potting Medium: Opt for a well-draining orchid mix consisting of bark, perlite, and sphagnum moss. Repot your Guaricyclia Yucatan every two to three years or when the potting medium breaks down, typically after the flowering period.

  7. Air Circulation: Ensure good air circulation around the plant to prevent the onset of fungal diseases and to promote healthy growth. Gentle airflow can be achieved with the help of oscillating fans.
