Cultivation Tips: To ensure the thriving health of your Cattleya percivaliana 'Summit' FCC/AOS x Cattleya trianaei 'Cashen's' FCC/AOS hybrid, here are some essential cultivation tips:

  2. Temperature: Maintain a temperature range of 65-80°F (18-27°C) during the day and a slight drop at night to stimulate flowering.

  3. Watering: Water thoroughly when the top inch of the potting medium feels dry. Ensure good drainage to prevent waterlogging.

  4. Humidity: Orchids love humidity. Aim for 50-70% humidity levels by using a humidity tray or misting regularly.

  5. Fertilization: Feed your hybrid orchid with a balanced orchid fertilizer every 2-4 weeks during the growing season (spring to early autumn).

  6. Repotting: Repot every 2-3 years, or when you see overcrowding. Use a well-draining orchid mix.

  7. Air Circulation: Good air circulation is vital. Use a small fan to maintain airflow around your plants.
