Introducing the Cycnodes Taiwan Gold 'Orange'—a stunning orchid hybrid that effortlessly marries the beauty of Cycnoches chlorochilon and Mormodes badia. This orchid variety is a delight for enthusiasts and a perfect gateway for beginners venturing into the captivating realm of Catasetinae orchids.

Cultivating the Taiwan Gold 'Orange' is a rewarding experience, as it boasts sprays of large, fragrant orange flowers that captivate the senses. Blooming typically occurs at the end of the active growth cycle, with fall and winter being the prime seasons, although its flowering schedule may surprise you, adding an element of excitement to your orchid care routine.

For optimal growth, provide abundant light and water during the growth phase, encouraging vigorous development. It's a resilient orchid that accommodates variations in rest periods, making it adaptable to your care routine. Creating an ideal environment during rest periods can potentially shorten the rest duration, ensuring your orchid thrives year-round.

This intermediate-level plant care guide encompasses a medium to large-sized plant with fragrant blooms measuring 5-6cm. To foster optimal growth, it thrives in a warm to hot environment, requiring meticulous attention to temperature maintenance. Adjusting watering practices based on the growth stage is crucial; a tutorial video serves as a valuable resource for guidance in this aspect.

Humidity plays a pivotal role, with the recommended range being 50-90% during the growth season, while around 30% is deemed acceptable during rest periods. Lighting conditions are imperative, necessitating high light levels during the growth season. This should be gradually increased, mirroring the watering pattern. The plant is adaptable to outdoor cultivation, and light becomes less critical during its rest period.

As for the growing medium, the plant is not particularly picky. A blend of bark, sphagnum moss, and coconut husk serves as a suitable mix. When it comes to fertilization, slow-release fertilizer proves effective. Adjusting the dosage or frequency in correlation with the watering volume is advised. To prevent nutrient buildup, flushing every other week is recommended.

An essential tip involves thorough rinsing of leaves during the peak season. Leaves may accumulate sap buildup in low humidity, potentially attracting unwanted guests. Being attentive to these care guidelines ensures the flourishing growth and overall well-being of the plant.
