Cultivating Tips:

  • Temperature: Maintain a warm to intermediate temperature range, ideally between 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C) during the day, with a slight drop in temperature at night.

  • Watering: Water your Cattleya Callistoglossa when the potting mix approaches dryness, usually every 7-10 days. Ensure good drainage to prevent root rot.

  • Humidity: Orchids thrive in higher humidity levels. Consider using a humidity tray or a humidifier, especially in dry indoor environments.

  • Fertilization: Use a balanced orchid fertilizer regularly during the growing season, reducing frequency during the dormant period.

  • Repotting: Repot your orchid when it outgrows its container, typically every 2-3 years. Use a well-draining orchid mix.
