With leaves not exceeding 5" in length, this petite species surprises with its large, mesmerizing blooms, making it a standout addition to any orchid collection.

Native to the vibrant ecosystems of Mexico and Brazil, Cattleya bicalhoi var. coerulea boasts distinct characteristics that set it apart. Its petals and sepals gracefully curl back, showcasing the magnificent ridges adorning its lip, which bursts forth with vivid purple hues and intricate venation.

When it comes to cultivation, providing the right conditions is key to unlocking the full potential of Cattleya bicalhoi var. coerulea. Offer it bright, indirect light to mimic its native habitat, coupled with high humidity and good air circulation to mimic the tropical forest environment. During active growth periods, water generously, ensuring that roots dry out promptly to prevent moisture-related issues. As temperatures drop in the fall, gradually reduce watering and maintain slightly drier conditions during the cooler months.

Remarkably adaptable, this species tolerates a wide range of temperatures, from near-freezing winters in its natural habitat to balmy summer days reaching the 90s in cultivation settings. With proper care and attention, expect this enchanting orchid to reward you with its breathtaking blooms, typically appearing when new growth emerges, often in the summer and fall seasons.
