ntroducing the Enchanting Brazilian Orchid - Cattleya tenebrosa x Cattleya warneri!

Discover the captivating beauty of our natural primary hybrid, a stunning blend of C. tenebrosa and C. warneri, both native to the lush Atlantic rainforest of Brazil. This lovely orchid species boasts large, exquisite flowers colored in a mesmerizing combination of light purple with a deeper purple lip, emanating a delightful fragrance that will fill your surroundings with a sweet floral aroma.

Cultivating this exceptional orchid is an exciting journey for any orchid enthusiast. To ensure its thriving growth, provide it with bright light, mimicking its natural habitat. A spot with indirect sunlight or filtered light will be ideal. High humidity levels are essential for these rainforest beauties. You can achieve this by placing a humidity tray nearby or by using a humidifier.

Air circulation is crucial for preventing any potential issues with fungal diseases. Make sure to keep a gentle breeze flowing around the plant, but avoid exposing it to harsh drafts.

For the perfect growing environment, use an open and fast-draining medium, such as coarse bark or LECA (lightweight expanded clay aggregate). These substrates help mimic the orchid's natural habitat, allowing excess water to drain away rapidly. Consider planting or mounting your Cattleya in a container that promotes quick drying of the roots, like a wooden basket, cork slab, or driftwood. This will help prevent root rot, as these orchids dislike having their roots constantly soaked.

When properly cared for, a well-flowered Cattleya will reward you with a magnificent display of at least four flowers on a spike, with five flowers not being uncommon. This vibrant and enchanting orchid will surely become the centerpiece of your collection, drawing admiration from all who lay eyes on its resplendent blooms.

This is a blooming size in a 5" pot, newly repotted, developing new growths, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited! 

Embrace the allure of the Brazilian rainforest with this exceptional Cattleya tenebrosa x Cattleya warneri hybrid. It is a testament to the beauty of nature and a true delight for any orchid enthusiast. Create a little piece of Brazil in your home or greenhouse, and let this exquisite orchid fill your space with its enchanting fragrance and stunning floral display.
