This exquisite variety of Cattleya lueddemanniana boasts a unique, rare-color form that sets it apart as a true collector's item.

Originating from the lush landscapes of Venezuela, Cattleya lueddemanniana var. alba thrives in its native habitat along the northern coast and the coastal mountain range, up to an elevation of about 1,800 feet. Its natural beauty is renowned, with showy, fragrant flowers that grace the springtime landscape and occasionally bloom again in the fall, adding an enchanting touch to any orchid collection.

Distinguished by the apex of its column, which bears a distinctive pair of wings or hooks, Cattleya lueddemanniana var. alba exhibits unique characteristics that captivate enthusiasts and collectors alike.

To cultivate this botanical treasure successfully, provide high light conditions with very bright, indirect sunlight, allowing some morning sun exposure.

Whether grown potted or mounted, ensure a well-draining medium such as a large aggregate bark mix, ideally in a well-ventilated terracotta pot for potted plants.

During the active growth phase, water generously but allow thorough drying between waterings to prevent root rot. Repotting may be necessary after flowering, coinciding with the emergence of new growth and roots.

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