Introducing a unique addition to your orchid collection - the Cattleya orchid mericlone, Rlc. Fire Jewel 'Volcano Queen'. This exquisite hybrid is the result of crossbreeding between Rlc. Volcano Island and Rlc. Taeko Tamaki.

The plant comes in a 5" pot and is blooming size, taking approximately 1 to 2 years to bloom. Mericlone, Limited!.

This Cattleya orchid produces stunning, vibrant red flowers and grows to an average height of 12-15 inches. The blooms measure 4-5 inches and are sure to be a showstopper.

Lighting: Cattleya orchids require bright, indirect light to thrive. Place them near an east- or west-facing window where they can receive morning or afternoon sun, but avoid direct sunlight, which can burn their leaves.

Temperature and humidity: Cattleya orchids prefer warm, humid conditions. Ideally, temperatures should range between 60-85°F (15-29°C) during the day, with a drop of about 10-15°F (5-8°C) at night. A humidity level of around 50-70% is optimal, which can be achieved by placing a tray of water or a humidifier near the plant.

Watering: Cattleya orchids should be watered thoroughly, but allow the potting mix to dry out slightly before watering again. Avoid letting the roots sit in standing water, as this can cause root rot.

Fertilizing: During the growing season (spring and summer), cattleya orchids benefit from regular fertilization with a balanced orchid fertilizer. Reduce the frequency of fertilization during the winter months when growth slows down.

Repotting: Cattleya orchids should be repotted every 2-3 years or when the potting mix breaks down and becomes compacted. Use a well-draining orchid mix and trim any dead or damaged roots before repotting.

By following these tips, you can help your cattleya orchid thrive and produce beautiful blooms year after year.
