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. Cattleya Alliance Starter Collection *Five Plants*

    Cattleya Alliance Starter Collection *Five Plants*

    SKU:10294/50

    Cattleya Alliance Starter Collection

    (Photos shown are examples only)

    Cattleyas and their relations are considered to be royalty among orchids.  Nothing seems quite as showy or classic, as a well grown Cattleya in full glory.  What we love most about this part of the orchid family, is the range of colors, shapes, sizes and even fragrances that are available for the discerning collector. Most growers start their orchid journey with a Phalaenopsis and perhaps even a Ladyslipper or Dancing Lady orchid. These make great beginner plants to try and they do well in most home growing environments.  But what happens when your conditions change or you are ready to try something new and different?  

    That is where the idea for our latest collection came from.  Included will be Five different Cattleya plants from within the Cattleya alliance.  (Meaning Cattleya, Laelia, Brassavola, and intergenerics of these kinds).  Our growers will include a different plant for each of the criteria listed below.  Growing requirements may vary depending on what received, giving you the grower a chance to experience a wide range of selections.  All plants included will be in 2.5"-3" pots.  Some will be ready for new containers this coming spring season. Some will be close to flowering size, and others will take a few years.

  3. Epidendrum nocturnum

    Epidendrum nocturnum

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.

  6. Laelia purpurata coerulea 'Sweet Twilight'

    Laelia purpurata coerulea 'Sweet Twilight' x Laelia purpurata werkhauseri 'Blue Sky'

    SKU:10176/30

    This Brazilian species is considered the 'Queen of the Laelias'. Once you enjoy the elegant show-stopping displays of spring time flowers you will agree!  This grex uses two different 'blue-lipped' forms to produce a new generation of seedlings that will have petals either pure white or slightly smokey gray. The trumpet shaped lips will have colors from slate to hyacinth combined with a heady floral fragrance.  Recommended for greenhouse or shade-house culture because they will need plenty of warm, bright light to mature.   

     We have plants available in 3" pots.

  7. 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.
