Introducing the Cattleya schilleriana var. albina 'Green Jade' x 'Biala,' a botanical treasure that captivates with its rare and exquisite features. This miniature compact bifoliate Cattleya, boasting undulated yellow petals and a ruffled white lip adorned with rich magenta overlays, is a stunning addition to any orchid enthusiast's collection. The 'Green Jade' x 'Biala' variety is particularly elusive, making it a gem for collectors seeking the extraordinary.

Hailing from the Espirito Santo region in Brazil, this orchid variety is a greenish-yellow form, teetering on the brink of extinction. However, our seed-grown plants offer a glimmer of hope, showcasing their resilience and reaching flowering size. The blooms of these specimens exude a captivating fragrance, adding a sensory delight to their already remarkable visual appeal.

Cultivating the Cattleya schilleriana var. albina 'Green Jade' x 'Biala' requires a delicate touch and attention to its unique preferences. Ensure optimal ventilation and maintain high humidity levels to mimic its native Brazilian habitat. Place the orchid in an environment with abundant indirect light, avoiding direct sunlight exposure that could harm the delicate plant.

Maintaining a temperature between 18 °C and 25 °C is crucial for unlocking the full potential of this miniature beauty. Fluctuations outside this range may inhibit flowering and compromise the overall health of leaves and blooms. Pay attention to the color of the leaves, as they provide valuable insights into the orchid's well-being. Dark leaves suggest insufficient light, hindering the potential for vibrant flowering, while overly light or yellowish-green leaves indicate an excess of light.

This is a blooming size in a 4" clay pot, newly repotted, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited!

To further enhance the orchid's development, always position new growth facing the side receiving the highest light. This strategic placement ensures that the Cattleya schilleriana var. albina 'Green Jade' x 'Biala' thrives under the ideal light conditions, promoting robust growth and a spectacular display of its unique and rare blossoms each spring. Elevate your orchid collection with this extraordinary specimen, and cultivate an appreciation for the beauty and fragility of this rare and endangered orchid variety.
