Cultivation Tips:

Location: Place your Cattleya warneri var. suavissima in a bright, warm window, ensuring exposure to indirect sunlight. During the summer months, consider moving the plant outdoors to a sheltered spot. Ideal for winter gardens, the orchid thrives in well-lit areas with temperatures not falling below 15°C or exceeding 30°C for extended periods.

Watering: In summer, allow the plant to slightly dry between waterings, avoiding waterlogged conditions. Exercise caution during winter, maintaining careful watering practices to prevent overhydration.

Temperature: Provide a warm and moist atmosphere during active growth, particularly in the winter when the plant is thriving. Keep winter nights above 18°C to ensure optimal conditions for Cattleya warneri var. suavissima.

Sunlight: Unlike some Cattleya species, this variant prefers slightly less sunlight. Monitor the leaf color, aiming for a light green appearance to indicate ideal light levels.

Growing Conditions: While not overly challenging to grow, Cattleya warneri var. suavissima has unique requirements. It actively grows during the winter, requiring warm and moist conditions that may be challenging to provide in colder climates. Hang it near the sunniest part of your greenhouse during winter, adjusting for the specific needs of this variant.

Flowering: Expect a well-flowered Cattleya warneri var. suavissima to produce four to five flowers on a spike. Ensure you place the plant back on the bench as soon as buds appear to avoid undesirable high temperatures and intense sunlight, which can harm developing buds.

Repotting: Only repot when the orchid begins sending out a flush of new roots, preferably during the warm summer months. Water thoroughly and let the medium dry out completely before the next watering to prevent root rot.

This is a blooming size division in a 4" clay pot, newly repotted, not established, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited!
