Introducing the stunning Rhyncholaeliocattleya Sharon King 'Volcano Queen' - an exquisite hybrid boasting the genetic lineage of Rlc. Oconee and Rlc. Gorgeous Gold. This orchid variety captivates with its massive, crimson blooms adorned with delicate yellow accents on the lips, making it an unparalleled gem in any orchid enthusiast's collection.

Cultivating the Rhyncholaeliocattleya Sharon King 'Volcano Queen' is a rewarding experience, provided you adhere to its specific care requirements:

Lighting: To unleash its full potential, provide this orchid with bright, indirect light. Position it near an east- or west-facing window to bask in the gentle morning or afternoon sun. Shield it from direct sunlight, as this can scorch its leaves.

Temperature and Humidity: Create a cozy environment for your 'Volcano Queen' with temperatures ranging from 60-85°F (15-29°C) during the day, coupled with a slight nighttime drop of 10-15°F (5-8°C). Maintain humidity levels between 50-70% by employing tactics such as nearby water trays or a humidifier.

Watering: Keep your orchid hydrated by watering it thoroughly, allowing the potting mix to dry out slightly between waterings. Prevent waterlogged conditions, which can spell trouble for its roots.

Fertilizing: Nurture vigorous growth and vibrant blooms during the active growing season (spring and summer) by fertilizing your 'Volcano Queen' with a balanced orchid fertilizer. Tailor your fertilization frequency to the plant's needs, scaling back during the winter months when growth slows.

Repotting: Refresh your orchid's living quarters every 2-3 years or when its potting mix starts to deteriorate. Opt for a well-draining orchid mix, and trim any expired or damaged roots before repotting.

This is a blooming size in a 5” pot about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited!

By adhering to these care guidelines, you'll empower your Rhyncholaeliocattleya Sharon King 'Volcano Queen' to flourish, gracing your space with its resplendent blooms year after year. Dive into the world of orchid cultivation and witness the beauty of this exceptional hybrid firsthand.
