Cattleya Cultivating Tips:

Cattleyas, known as the "Queen of Orchids," are admired for their vibrant colors and enticing fragrance. Here are some cultivation tips to ensure your Rlc. Thaksina Red thrives:

  1. Light: Provide bright, indirect light to mimic the orchid's natural habitat. Cattleyas generally prefer 12-14 hours of light per day, so placing them near a south or east-facing window is ideal.

  2. Temperature: Maintain a daytime temperature range of 70-80°F (21-27°C) and a slightly cooler nighttime range of 55-65°F (13-18°C). This temperature differential helps promote blooming.

  3. Humidity: Cattleyas appreciate humidity levels between 40-60%. If the air in your home is dry, consider using a humidifier or placing the orchid on a tray filled with water and pebbles.

  4. Watering: Allow the orchid's roots to dry slightly between waterings. Water thoroughly, ensuring proper drainage to prevent root rot. During the growing season, water more frequently, and reduce watering during the dormant period.

  5. Fertilization: Feed your Rlc. Thaksina Red with a balanced orchid fertilizer regularly during the growing season. Dilute the fertilizer to half-strength to avoid overfeeding.

This is a blooming size in a 5" pot, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited!
