Introducing the mesmerizing Cattleya dowiana orchid, a prized gem among orchid enthusiasts and collectors. Native to the lush rainforests of Colombia, this rare species of the Cattleya genus boasts breathtaking beauty and elegance.

At the heart of its allure are its striking 6" flowers, adorned with vibrant red lips and emitting a delightful vanilla fragrance. The most distinguishing feature of the Cattleya dowiana is its large, golden-yellow blooms, captivating the eye and perfuming the air with their sweet aroma. Blooming in the spring and summer months, these flowers grace tall, upright stems, surrounded by lush, dark green foliage.

Caring for the Cattleya dowiana is a joy, provided you meet its specific needs. This medium-sized orchid thrives in bright, indirect light and favors temperatures between 60-85°F (15-29°C). Watering once a week, ensuring the medium dries slightly between waterings, is crucial to prevent dreaded root rot. Additionally, maintaining a humidity level of 50-70% mimics its natural habitat and supports healthy growth.

Regular fertilization every two weeks during the growing season promotes robust growth and abundant blooms. Choose a balanced orchid fertilizer diluted to half strength to avoid over-fertilization, which can harm the plant.

To cultivate this beauty successfully, prioritize good air circulation to ward off any potential fungal or bacterial threats. Whether potted in a well-draining orchid mix or mounted on bark or wood, the Cattleya dowiana flourishes with proper care. When it's time to repot, wait until after the flowering season and only when the orchid has outgrown its current home.
