Introducing the exquisite Rlc. Yuan Dung Python 'Gold Medal' orchid, a captivating hybrid that combines the elegance of Cattleya Green Emerald with the allure of Rlc. Waianae Leopard. This remarkable orchid boasts compact yet robust growth, making it an ideal addition to any orchid collection.

Rlc. Yuan Dung Python 'Gold Medal' produces stunning 3" flowers adorned with heavy spotting, adding a touch of mystique to any space. Each stem can bear up to 11 large flowers, ranging from 8 to 12 cm in size. These blooms are not only visually striking but also boast a delightful fragrance that fills the air, creating a captivating sensory experience.

One of the remarkable features of Rlc. Yuan Dung Python 'Gold Medal' is its resilience. As descendants of the sturdy Rlc. Waianae Leopard lineage, these orchids are exceptionally durable and drought-tolerant, making them well-suited for both novice and experienced growers alike. Additionally, their tolerance to a range of temperatures further enhances their adaptability to various growing conditions.

Blooming in the summertime, Rlc. Yuan Dung Python 'Gold Medal' brings a burst of color and fragrance when many other plants are resting. Its bifoliate nature adds to its charm, while its compact size makes it a perfect choice for those with limited space.

For orchid enthusiasts seeking a smaller option, miniature Cattleyas are also available, offering the same beauty and resilience in a more petite package.

Cultivating Tips:

  • Light: Provide bright, indirect light for optimal growth. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the delicate leaves.
  • Temperature: Maintain daytime temperatures between 70-80°F (21-27°C) and nighttime temperatures around 60-65°F (15-18°C).
  • Humidity: Keep humidity levels around 50-70%. Use a humidifier or place the orchid on a tray filled with pebbles and water to increase humidity.
  • Watering: Water thoroughly when the top inch of the potting medium feels dry. Allow excess water to drain away to prevent waterlogging.
  • Fertilization: Feed with a balanced orchid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 2-4 weeks during the growing season. Reduce frequency during the dormant period.
  • Potting: Repot every 2-3 years using a well-draining orchid potting mix. Choose a pot that allows for good airflow around the roots.
