🌿 Habitat and Care Tips 🌿

Native to a narrow coastal strip in Brazil, the Cattleya kerrii has a unique habitat preference. It thrives at an elevation of approximately 350 feet in the shade, often found near swampy ponds or the edges of watercourses. To ensure your Cattleya kerrii flourishes, here are some essential cultivation tips:

  1. Light: Provide bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the delicate leaves.

  2. Temperature: Maintain a temperature range of 65-75°F (18-24°C) during the day and a slight drop at night. This mimics its native tropical conditions.

  3. Humidity: Cattleya kerrii loves humidity. Aim for 50-70% humidity levels, especially during the growing season.

  4. Watering: Keep the potting medium consistently moist but not soggy. Water thoroughly and allow excess water to drain to prevent root rot.

  5. Potting Medium: Use a well-draining orchid mix, such as bark or sphagnum moss, to ensure good air circulation around the roots.

  6. Fertilization: Feed your Cattleya kerrii with a balanced orchid fertilizer at half-strength every 2-4 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer).

  7. Repotting: Repot your orchid every 2-3 years or when the potting medium breaks down. This promotes healthy root growth.

  8. Flowering: Enjoy the exquisite blooms that appear on 1-2 flowered inflorescences, held just above the foliage.

  9. Pruning: Trim spent flower spikes to encourage new growth and future blooms.
