Introducing the breathtaking Cattleya Rlc. Lustrous Jade, a stunning hybrid cross between Rlc. Ta-Shiang Yellow Dragon x Rlc. Haw Yuan Gold. With its large, luminous yellow flowers tinged with hints of chartreuse, this orchid cultivar is a true marvel to behold.

The journey of owning a Cattleya Rlc. Lustrous Jade begins with understanding its unique cultivation needs. Here are some tips to ensure your orchid thrives:

  1. Light: Provide bright, indirect light for optimal growth. Place your orchid near a south or east-facing window where it can receive ample sunlight without being exposed to direct rays.

  2. Temperature: Maintain a consistent temperature range of 65-80°F (18-27°C) during the day, with a slight drop at night. Avoid sudden temperature fluctuations, as they can stress the plant.

  3. Humidity: Cattleyas thrive in high humidity environments. Aim for humidity levels of 50-70%. You can increase humidity by placing a humidity tray filled with water beneath the orchid or by using a humidifier.

  4. Watering: Water your Cattleya Rlc. Lustrous Jade thoroughly when the potting medium approaches dryness. Allow excess water to drain freely from the pot to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot.

  5. Potting Medium: Use a well-draining orchid mix consisting of materials like bark, perlite, and sphagnum moss. Repot your orchid every 1-2 years to refresh the growing medium and prevent compaction.

Now, let's delve into the enchanting beauty of the Rlc. Lustrous Jade itself. Upon blooming, its blossoms unfurl in a radiant shade of bright green, captivating the eye with their fresh vibrancy. As the days pass, watch in awe as these blossoms gradually transition to a resplendent shade of bright yellow, reminiscent of the sun's golden rays.

But the allure of the Rlc. Lustrous Jade extends beyond its captivating colors. Prepare to be enchanted by its sweet, intoxicating fragrance, which fills the air with a delightful aroma, making it a joy to experience.
