Introducing the exquisite Cattleya Isfield, a mesmerizing hybrid resulting from the crossbreeding of Laelia Pacavia and Cattleya warscewiczii var. alba 'Kathleen'. This orchid variety is a true masterpiece, boasting stunning blooms and delicate fragrance that will captivate any orchid enthusiast.

The Cattleya Isfield showcases large, round petals with a pristine white coloration, delicately tinged with hints of soft pink and lavender.

Cultivating the Cattleya Isfield is a gratifying experience, and with proper care, it will flourish and reward you with its splendid blooms. Here are some essential tips to ensure its optimal growth:

  1. Light Requirements: Place your Cattleya Isfield in a bright spot with filtered or indirect sunlight. Approximately 50-70% shade is ideal to prevent leaf burn and encourage healthy flower development.

  2. Temperature and Humidity: Maintain a moderate to warm temperature range between 60°F (15°C) and 80°F (27°C) during the day. A slight drop in temperature at night can promote blooming. Additionally, maintain humidity levels between 50% and 70% to mimic the orchid's natural habitat.

  3. Watering: Water your Cattleya Isfield thoroughly when the potting medium begins to dry out. It is essential to provide adequate drainage to prevent waterlogging, as these orchids are susceptible to root rot. Avoid spraying water directly on the leaves or flowers to prevent bacterial or fungal infections.

  4. Potting and Medium: Repot your Cattleya Isfield every two to three years or when the potting medium starts to break down. Use a well-draining orchid mix composed of bark, sphagnum moss, and perlite. This combination allows for proper aeration and root development.

  5. Fertilization: Feed your orchid regularly during the active growth phase using a balanced orchid fertilizer. Dilute the fertilizer according to the manufacturer's instructions and apply it every two to three weeks. Reduce or cease fertilization during the plant's dormant period.

  6. Air Circulation: Provide ample air circulation around your Cattleya Isfield to prevent the accumulation of moisture and minimize the risk of fungal diseases. Gentle air movement also helps the plant's overall health and prevents stagnant conditions.
