Introducing the Cattleya skinneri 'Heiti Jacobs' FCC/AOS, a captivating orchid that effortlessly blends elegance with ease of care. This natural hybrid of Cattleya x Guatemalensis boasts remarkable, very large pink flowers that bloom with exquisite form in the enchanting month of April.

Cultivation Tips: Cattleya skinneri 'Heiti Jacobs' thrives in bright indirect light, making it essential to provide a fair amount of luminosity for optimal growth. However, caution should be exercised, as direct sunlight can lead to unsightly burns on both leaves and delicate flowers. Emulating its native habitat, this orchid appreciates humidity, so maintain a moderately humid environment.

When it comes to watering, allow the plant to dry out between waterings, particularly in the winter months. This low-maintenance beauty prefers a well-draining chunky soil mix, such as a combination of orchid bark, perlite, and charcoal. Alternatively, consider mounting it on a piece of wood for an aesthetically pleasing and natural growth pattern.

Natural Beauty and Origin: Originating in the humid Mountain Forests of Central America, spanning from Southern Mexico to Costa Rica, Cattleya skinneri 'Heiti Jacobs' showcases its natural hybrid origins. Found gracefully clinging to tree trunks and branches, this orchid blooms from winter through spring, producing a breathtaking display of slightly fragrant pink and purple flowers. The unique feature of not all flowers blooming simultaneously creates an ongoing spectacle of nature's artistry.

The bell-shaped lip of the flowers, pointing forward, reveals a beautiful white/cream shade, adding an extra touch of allure. With an air of sophistication, this orchid graces its surroundings with a light, pleasant fragrance when in full bloom.

Not just a botanical wonder, Cattleya skinneri is the national flower of Costa Rica, symbolizing beauty and resilience. Beyond its natural habitat, this orchid finds itself adorning churches and homes as a cherished Easter decoration. Its multi-floral spikes contribute to the joy of cultivation, ensuring that this Cattleya variety becomes a delightful and fragrant presence in any space.

This is a near blooming size in a 4" pot, newly repotted, about 2 years to bloom. Grown from Seed! Limited!
