Introducing the Enchanting Cattleya luteola: A Miniature Marvel for Your Orchid Collection!

Behold the captivating allure of Cattleya luteola, a petite yet stunning member of the Cattleya species native to the lush landscapes of Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, and Bolivia. This super mini orchid is a botanical gem for enthusiasts with limited space, showcasing lemon-yellow to chartreuse flowers adorned with a mesmerizing magenta, white, and yellow lip.

With a diminutive stature, Cattleya luteola is perfect for those who adore Cattleyas but crave a space-efficient option. Its almost creeping growth habit adds to its unique charm, making it a delightful addition to any orchid collection.

Cultivating this botanical wonder is a joy, as it adapts gracefully to various conditions. Whether you provide cool to warm temperatures or moderate to low light, C. luteola thrives with resilience, turning any environment into a haven for its vibrant blooms.

Native to the Amazon regions, C. luteola naturally grows under shady conditions on tree trunks in dense woods, alongside babbling streams. Recreating its habitat is easy with this adaptable orchid that flourishes in humidity levels of 80 to 85 percent.

Witness the magic as the flowers, true to their namesake, boast a radiant yellow hue. Despite its small size, the blooms are surprisingly large, adding a burst of color and elegance to your orchid haven. While many orchids require a winter rest, Cattleya luteola simply needs thorough drying between waterings during the winter months.

In its native habitats, night temperatures range from the mid-60s F to the low 70s F, with daytime temperatures soaring into the mid- to high 80s F. This mini marvel rewards your care with multiple blooms throughout the year, transforming your space into a tropical paradise.

Don't miss the opportunity to own this blooming size Cattleya luteola, in a 4" clay pot, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited!
