Introducing the stunning Epicattleya Rene Marques 'Tyler' - a captivating hybrid orchid that's a true showstopper in any collection. This compact to medium-sized beauty boasts an exquisite display of green flowers with large, broad pink lips, each measuring a generous 2 inches across. If you're seeking a unique and visually striking orchid, your search ends here.

Generally bloom in late winter/spring. Really awesome flowers. Great contrast of colors. These generally stay a little shorter than its pseudoepidendrum parent.

Cultivation Tips: Epicattleya Rene Marques 'Tyler' is a unique orchid that thrives with a little extra care. Here's how to ensure its vibrant presence in your home:

1. Lighting: Provide bright, indirect light to encourage optimal growth and flowering. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, as this can scorch its delicate foliage.

2. Watering: Unlike typical Cattleya types, this hybrid prefers slightly more frequent watering. Keep the pot consistently moist but not waterlogged. Allow the top layer of the potting mix to dry out before watering again. Ensure that the pot doesn't remain bone dry for extended periods.

3. Potting: Exercise caution when repotting. Only repot your Epicattleya when new growth is visibly extending beyond the edge of the pot and producing new roots. Avoid overpotting, as these orchids tend to bloom best when their root system is somewhat cramped.

4. Temperature and Humidity: Maintain a warm and humid environment. Ideal daytime temperatures range from 70°F to 80°F (21°C to 27°C), with a slight drop at night. Using a humidity tray or humidifier can help create the necessary moisture levels.

5. Fertilization: Feed your orchid with a balanced, water-soluble orchid fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or stop fertilization during the dormant winter months.

6. Flowering: Expect the magnificent blooms to grace your space during late winter to early spring, depending on your specific growing conditions. The arching spikes produce showy, long-lasting flowers that seem hand-painted. Young plants may have a couple of flowers, but mature ones, around 24 inches in height, can boast seven or more blooms at a time.

7. Pruning: After the flowers drop, resist the urge to trim the flower spikes as they can produce additional flowers from side nodes for several years.

8. Stunning Contrast: Epicattleya Rene Marques 'Tyler' offers a breathtaking contrast of colors, with its green petals and striking pink lips. This orchid is a real eye-catcher and a crowd-pleaser.

This is a blooming size in a 2” pot, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited!

This captivating orchid, a hybrid of Epidendrum pseudepidendrum and Cattleya Claesiana, brings together the best of both worlds. With its unique appearance and manageable size, it's a must-have for orchid enthusiasts and collectors alike. Bring the beauty of the Epicattleya Rene Marques 'Tyler' into your space and enjoy its splendid, hand-painted flowers season after season.
