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.

    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.
