Introducing the exquisite Cattleya jongheana × Cattleya mantiqueirae primary hybrid, a must-have addition to any orchid enthusiast's collection. This compact grower boasts stunning blooms that captivate with their shimmering beauty when illuminated by light.

Derived from two exceptional parent plants, Cattleya jongheana and Cattleya mantiqueirae, this hybrid inherits the best traits from both. The Cattleya mantiqueirae parent contributes vibrant red petals adorned with intricate orange and yellow veining, creating a mesmerizing visual feast.

Cultivating this hybrid is a rewarding experience for any orchid enthusiast. Here are some tips to help you care for your Cattleya jongheana × Cattleya mantiqueirae:

  1. Light: Provide bright, indirect light to encourage healthy growth and abundant flowering. Avoid direct sunlight, especially during the hottest part of the day, as it can scorch the delicate petals.

  2. Temperature: Maintain moderate temperatures, ideally between 60°F to 80°F (15°C to 27°C) during the day, with slightly cooler temperatures at night. Adequate airflow is also essential to prevent fungal diseases.

  3. Watering: Water thoroughly when the growing medium approaches dryness, allowing excess water to drain freely from the pot. During the growing season, typically spring to fall, water more frequently, but reduce watering during the dormant period in winter.

  4. Humidity: Cattleya orchids thrive in high humidity environments. Provide humidity levels of around 50-70% to keep the plant healthy and prevent dehydration of the pseudobulbs and roots.

  5. Potting Medium: Use a well-draining orchid mix, such as a combination of bark, perlite, and charcoal, to promote healthy root growth and prevent waterlogging.

This is a blooming size in a 4” pot, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited!

With its incredible parentage and stunning blooms, Cattleya jongheana × Cattleya mantiqueirae is sure to be a true showstopper in any orchid collection. Bring home this extraordinary hybrid and enjoy its beauty for years to come.
