Introducing the exquisite Cattleya × brymeriana var. alba, a captivating natural primary hybrid that arises from the enchanting union of Cattleya eldorado var. alba and Cattleya violacea var. alba. Originating in the lush landscapes of Brazil, this pseudobulbous epiphyte flourishes within the wet tropical biome, showcasing nature's brilliance in its growth and flowering patterns.

Cultivating the Cattleya × brymeriana var. alba is a rewarding endeavor for orchid enthusiasts and collectors alike. To ensure optimal growth and blooming, here are some essential tips:

  1. Light Requirements: Place your Cattleya × brymeriana var. alba in a location with bright, filtered light. These orchids thrive in conditions that mimic their natural habitat, receiving ample sunlight without being exposed to harsh, direct rays.

  2. Temperature and Humidity: Maintain a temperature range of 65-75°F (18-24°C) during the day and a slight drop at night. High humidity levels, preferably between 50-70%, are crucial for this tropical beauty.

  3. Watering: Water your Cattleya × brymeriana var. alba consistently but allow the growing medium to dry slightly between waterings. This orchid prefers a well-draining mix to prevent waterlogged roots.

  4. Air Circulation: Ensure proper air circulation around the orchid to prevent the development of fungal and bacterial issues. Gentle air movement mimics its natural environment and enhances overall health.

  5. Fertilization: Feed your orchid with a balanced orchid fertilizer every 2-3 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce the frequency during the dormant period in fall and winter.

  6. Potting Medium: Opt for a well-draining orchid mix, such as a combination of bark, sphagnum moss, and perlite. Repot your Cattleya × brymeriana var. alba every 2-3 years to refresh the growing medium.

The Cattleya × brymeriana var. alba may surprise you with its elegant blooms, which can display alba, semi-alba, or tipo flowers coloration. While we don't have a specific photo of the hybrid, the anticipation of its unique and varied flowers adds an element of excitement to your cultivation journey.
