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.

  2. Epidendrum nocturnum

    Epidendrum nocturnum

    SKU:10311/30

    We acquired our compact growing strain from Eucagenera, many years ago. These have been fast growers and easy bloomers. Plants grow in clumps with pale cream and tan blooms that are only fragrant in the evening and overnight hours. Great for warm climates and does well with mount or basket culture.

    We have Blooming Size plants in 3” mesh baskets that are large enough to bud and flower at any time.  As they mature, plants become free-flowering year round.

  3. Lc. Jungle Elf  ‘Carmela’ x Cattleya Mark Jones ‘Newberry’

    Lc. Jungle Elf ‘Carmela’ x Cattleya Mark Jones ‘Newberry’

    SKU:9987/30

    Lc. Jungle Elf  ‘Carmela’ x Cattleya Mark Jones ‘Newberry’

    You can expect semi-compact to dwarf sized plants with spotted yellow blooms similar to the photo shown. The intensity of the freckles with vary but all should be colorful and unique. Suitable for mount or basket culture, and warmth tolerant.

    We have found that these prefer very well-draining containers so seedlings are now happily growing in 3" mesh baskets with chunky media.  Plants are expected to reach flowering size within 2 years.

  4. Pot. Newberry Apricot x Pot. Newberry Delight 'Mendenhall' AM/AOS

    Pot. Newberry Apricot x Pot. Newberry Delight 'Mendenhall' AM/AOS

    SKU:10216/25

    Pot. Newberry Apricot  x Pot. Newberry Delight 'Mendenhall' AM/AOS

    (Both parents are pictured)

    This is our newest miniature to compact growing cattleya selection.  This time we have combined our favorite red parent, Newberry Delight with Newberry Apricot.  The latter is an interesting combination of Blc. George King x Soph. coccinea.  We are expecting to see a range of red and orange blooms, with very round overlapping form.  Plants will be compact growers around 10" tall when mature.  We do suggest these for cool to intermediate conditions due to the recent Sophronitis influence. 

    We have Near Blooming Size plants in at least 2.5" pot size.  These are expected to flower for the first time within 12-18 months.

  5. Pot. Paxton Brooks 'Orange Surprise'

    Potianara Paxton Brooks ‘Orange Surprise’ x Potinara Paxton Brooks ‘Sunset Glow’

    SKU:10046/25

    We flowered so many wonderful cultivars from the original grex, we had a hard time choosing our two favorites to create this sibling cross.  These seedlings are expected to be mostly compact growers, though a few larger growing plants are expected.  Flowers will be in a range of sunset tones from orange and peach to rose and some coral shades.  Warmth tolerant but the best flower coloring can appear in cooler temperatures.  Some of these will flower multiple times per year.  

    We have a nice crop of plants established in 2.5" pots.
