Cattleyas

Cattleyas, the royalty of the orchid family, are native to the slopes of the Andes in South America. On the mountain slopes they have moderate days and cool nights, so they appreciate a temperature drop in the evening. They are comfortable at temperatures as low as 55 degrees at night, with days in the 70's or higher. They need bright light (not full sun) to flower. They must have good drainage, and like to dry a bit between waterings. Fertilize lightly when they are in active growth. Repot in a well draining mix, like our Cypress blends, when they have outgrown the pot or the mix has broken down (every two or three years).

Please refer to individual items for time expected until first blooming. Many of our offerings are young plants that will need to be grown to flowering size.  Unless otherwise stated in the description, items listed are not sent in spike, bud or bloom.

    Brassavola digbyana ‘Belize #2’ x Brassavola digbyana ‘Crestwood Emerald’

    SKU:9676/25

    Brassavola digbyana 

    An ever popular species that needs no introduction. Beautiful, waxy green blooms with a deeply fringed lip and a heavenly fragrance. Needs to be grown in bright light and warm temperatures year round.  Plants can be slow to grow, but once they reach flowering size are worth the wait. Should only be grown in media or containers with excellent drainage otherwise plants will easily lose roots from over watering. 

     We have healthy plants growing in 2.5" pots.

  8. Brassavola digbyana 'Crestwood Emerald'

    Brassavola digbyana ‘Belize ‘#1’ x self

    SKU:9280/30

    Brassavola digbyana ‘Belize ‘#1’ x self

    This famous and extremely fragrant species is native to warm regions ranging from Mexico down through Central America. Large, deeply fringed blooms have a waxy substance and intense green coloring. 

    A warm growing species native to regions of Mexico and regions further south.  As plants mature plenty of very bright direct is needed, though too much will cause red and desiccated foliage tips.  Grow in fast draining media that does not need to be replaced often as the needed frequent waterings cause media to decompose rapidly.  An excellent candidate for mount or basket culture under the right conditions.

    Great looking plants in at least 3" pots, most with strong new growth.

  9. Brassavola nodosa *Lady of the Night*

    Brassavola nodosa *Lady of the Night*

    SKU:Bnodosa/30

    Brassavola nodosa (4N) x Brassavola nodosa 'Mas Mejor' AM/AOS (2N)

    The famous Lady of the Night Orchid.  We never seem to have enough of these on our benches so we asked some friends to help us out so we can offer these in time for the holidays!

    This amazing species is perfect for beginner and advanced collectors alike.  Almost almost indestructible and very warmth tolerant.  Brassavola nodosa can bloom pretty much any time of year but mid summer to fall are the highlight of the growing season.  Blooms have creamy green petals and heartshaped white lips.  Each stem can hold several blooms and as plants gain in maturity, you can expect quite a show!  The nickname comes from the fact that this extremely fragrant species can only be fully enjoyed at night.  

    Growing Suggestions:  This species must be grown in very well draining media, or preferably in baskets or on mounts.  Foliage is terete, and very succulent with multiple growths easily appearing in a season.  Even in small containers the mix must be very open and coarse to allow lots of air flow around the roots. Because of the fast draining media, plants require additional watering year round.  If growing in baskets or on mounts be prepared for daily summertime watering.   Bright, indirect light is needed for best growth and flower production.  Not suitable for low to medium light conditions.  

    We are offering Blooming Size plants well established in 3" pots.  These are expected to bloom anytime in the next 6-12 months.  We do not suggest repotting these until at least next summer. 

     


     

    These beautiful plants were provided by our friends at a wholesale orchid nursery in Hawaii. The parents were virus free at the time of hybridizing but because we did not raise them in our greenhouses, we can not guarantee them to be virus free as we would our own lab grown material. Otherwise, we guarantee your satisfaction and safe delivery as with other plant purchases.

  10. Cattleya bicolor 4N

    Cattleya bicolor 4N

    SKU:9878-9879/30

    A tall, slender growing Brazilian species that loves bright light and warm temperatures. Clusters of waxy green blooms with bright fuchsia lips appear above bifoliate foliage. These seedlings are bred from our tetraploid 'Mendenhall-Beta' parent and are expected to have heavy substance and clear, bright coloring.

    We are offering seedlings growing in 3" mesh baskets and chunky tree fern media.  We have found that this species does not take well to over watering, especially during the winter months.  Our suggestion for these seedlings is to mist heavily 3 to 4 times per week during the winter, and daily during the warmer summer months. First flowers are expected within twelve months.

    THESE LOOK GREAT RIGHT NOW!!
