Cattleya gaskelliana var. Tipo ‘Salto Angel’ is a stunning orchid species with large, showy flowers that are highly prized by collectors and orchid enthusiasts. This orchid is native to the highlands of Venezuela and is known for its vibrant, deep pink color and elegant shape.

Cultivating Cattleya gaskelliana requires some specific care to ensure the plant thrives. Here are some tips to help you grow this orchid successfully:

Light: Cattleya gaskelliana requires bright, indirect light to grow well. Too much direct sunlight can scorch the leaves and flowers, so it's best to provide filtered light or a shady location.

Temperature: This orchid prefers temperatures between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit (15-27 degrees Celsius) during the day, with a slight drop in temperature at night.

Watering: Cattleya gaskelliana should be watered thoroughly but allowed to dry out slightly between watering. Avoid letting the plant sit in standing water, as this can lead to root rot.

Humidity: This orchid thrives in high humidity, so consider placing it in a humid area or using a humidifier.

Fertilizer: Cattleya gaskelliana benefits from regular fertilization, especially during the growing season. Use a balanced orchid fertilizer at half-strength every two weeks.

Cattleya gaskelliana 'Salto Angel' is a vigorous, easy to grow, free-flowering plant. It will normally begin growing in the United States in early February and complete its growth by mid-May.

Cattleya gaskelliana is one of the Cattleya species that produces flowers as the growth is maturing. In other words, it does not produce a growth and then rest for a few months before flowering as do Cattleya mossiae and Cattleya trianaei.

This is a blooming size division in a 4” clay pot, newly repotted, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, developing a new growth! Grown from Seed! Limited!

Overall, Cattleya gaskelliana is a beautiful and rewarding orchid to grow for anyone willing to put in the time and effort to meet its specific care requirements. With the right conditions, this orchid will reward you with stunning, fragrant flowers that are sure to impress.
