Cultivation Tips: For optimal growth, provide your Cattleya hybrid with high light conditions—very bright, indirect light, supplemented by some morning sun. Strive for a balance between moderation and generosity, offering moderate humidity levels and robust air circulation. These adaptable orchids can thrive whether potted or mounted.

Potted Plants: If potted, choose a well-ventilated terracotta pot and utilize a large aggregate bark mix. Repotting can be done after flowering when new growth produces fresh roots.

Watering: During the active growing phase, water generously, allowing the medium to thoroughly dry between waterings. Strike a balance between hydration and dry periods for a thriving, robust plant.
