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.

  1. Laelia purpurata var. alba ‘June Bride’ AM/AOS x Laelia purpurata var. alba ‘Elias’ HCC/AOS

    Laelia purpurata var. alba ‘June Bride’ AM/AOS x Laelia purpurata var. alba ‘Elias’ HCC/AOS

    SKU:9662/25

    As seen on the cover of our Holiday 2016 catalog.

    This pure white form is considered one of the rarest colors of this species. We used our two best and most floriferous parents in this new offering. Very Fragrant.

    This species should be grown in very bright, indirect light and prefers 65-85 degrees year round if possible.  Plants can tolerate cooler temperatures if kept dry. Large growing, and needs plenty of space as they grow.

  2. Laelia rubescens (alba x aurea) x sib *New Rare Species*

    Laelia rubescens (alba x aurea) x sib *New Rare Species*

    SKU:9982/25

    Laelia rubescens (alba x aurea) x sib

    This hard to find species is native to Mexico and down through Central America, usually in areas with warm, bright conditions. Plants have rounded, short and rather flat pseudobulbs with thick rounded foliage.  Each fall after the summer growing period is over, tall bloom stems emerge to bloom usually by November.  This form was made using both white and yellow parents.  The results being flowers are a creamy off-white with black “eyes” in the center  Mature plants can hold multiple stems each season, with dozens of flowers making quite an impressive sight.

    Growing Suggestions:  Recommended for warm growing conditions, meaning 65 degrees or warmer year round.  Plants can tolerate short periods of cooler weather if kept dry. As plants mature, brighter light will be needed than seedlings currently receive but be cautious of causing leaf blushing or burn as plants won't recover easily. We usually hang larger plants high in the greenhouse above other crops and they flower well. Well draining media is a must to avoid rot.  These are easily grown in hanging baskets or on mounts.  We also have found that a bit of a dry winter rest is appreciated in cooler climates.  Water just enough to keep roots and bulbs from shriveling. 

    We are offering these beauties in 2" mesh pots.  After they outgrow these containers in the next year or two they can be slid right into larger baskets with little fuss.  Plants are expected to be flowering size in approximately two years.
