  • Excellent Shape and Quality: Known for its outstanding shape, this variety ensures that every bloom is of the highest quality, making it a prized possession for any orchid collector.

Cultivation Tips:

  1. Light: Provide bright, indirect light. A south or east-facing window is ideal, ensuring the plant gets ample light without direct sun exposure that could scorch the leaves.
  2. Temperature: Maintain daytime temperatures between 70-85°F (21-29°C) and nighttime temperatures around 55-65°F (13-18°C). Cattleyas appreciate a slight drop in temperature at night.
  3. Watering: Water thoroughly when the potting medium is nearly dry. Ensure good drainage to prevent root rot. During active growth, water more frequently, and reduce watering in the winter months.
  4. Humidity: Aim for 50-70% humidity. Use a humidity tray or room humidifier if necessary, and ensure good air circulation to prevent fungal issues.
  5. Feeding: Fertilize with a balanced orchid fertilizer every two weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding to once a month during the dormant period (fall and winter).
  6. Repotting: Repot every 2-3 years, preferably after blooming. Use a well-draining orchid mix, such as bark or a bark-perlite blend, to keep the roots healthy and aerated.
  7. Support: As the plant grows, use stakes to support the pseudobulbs and inflorescences to prevent damage from the weight of the blooms.
