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.

    Nothing puts on a show quite like a gorgeous classic white Cattleya.  This new cross has the all the elements needed tp produce stunning specimens.  Both parents are large standards with pure white petals and a dark yellow throat and upper lip.  Flowers will be generous in size and we expect good bud count as well.  Extremely fragrant with sturdy foliage to boot.

    We have a nice batch of lovely plants in 5" pots that are flowering size.  A few may bloom this year but most will wait until next fall.  

     


     

    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.
