Cultivation Tips:

  1. Light and Temperature: Place your Cattleya schilleriana x Cattleya warnerii in a location where it can receive bright, indirect light. These orchids thrive in warm temperatures, ideally between 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C) during the day and slightly cooler at night.

  2. Watering: Allow the potting medium to dry out slightly between waterings. It's best to water in the morning, enabling the orchid to dry before nightfall. Avoid waterlogging the roots, as they prefer good drainage.

  3. Humidity: Orchids generally appreciate higher humidity levels. Consider using a humidity tray or a humidifier to maintain humidity around 50% to 70%.

  4. Potting Medium: Use a well-draining orchid mix that allows good air circulation around the roots. A mix of fir bark, sphagnum moss, and perlite is commonly used for Cattleya orchids.

  5. Fertilization: During the active growth period (usually spring and summer), feed your orchid with a balanced orchid fertilizer. Follow the manufacturer's instructions to avoid over-fertilization.
