Introducing the exquisite Rlc. Golf Green 'Hair Pig' ,  a remarkable hybrid between C. moscombe and Rl. digbyana. With its unique characteristics and limited availability, this is a must-have addition for all cattleya collectors.

The Rlc. Golf Green showcases exceptionally unusual light chartreuse 6" flowers that bear the distinctive frilled lip of the digbyana species. What sets it apart even further is the presence of frilled petals, indicating a peloric makeup. This captivating combination of traits creates a truly captivating and eye-catching display.

Resembling the renowned B. Digbyana, these plants produce large, subtly fragrant flowers that emanate a delightful fragrance during the night and early morning hours. The vibrant bright green blooms are accented by heavily frayed edges, and the lip often showcases a gentle blush of light pink.

To cultivate the Rlc. Golf Green successfully, it thrives in a high light environment. However, be cautious of exposing the plant to direct sunlight during midday, as it may cause harm. Aim for bright but indirect light conditions to encourage robust flowering.

In terms of watering, it is essential to maintain a slightly dry environment for the Rlc. Golf Green. Water the plant approximately 2-3 times per week when potted in a porous and well-draining medium. Alternatively, these plants can be beautifully mounted in baskets with minimal or no media at all. It's crucial to note that watering frequency should be adjusted based on the temperature and humidity levels in your specific growing environment. As a general guideline, allow the plants to dry out between waterings.

Providing typical cattleya care, the Rlc. Golf Green is relatively easy to grow and rewards its caretaker with stunning blooms. In most cases, you can expect this hybrid to bloom during the winter to early spring months, adding a touch of natural beauty to the seasonal transition.

This is a blooming size division in a 5" pot, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited!
