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.

  4. 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.  

    * Miniature or Compact Grower

    * Easy to Grow Species

    * Grower Suitable for Mount Culture

    * Carter and Holmes Original Mericlone

    * Carter and Holmes Hybrid, Meaning Seed-Grown

  5. Cattleya trianae 'A.C. Burrage' AM/AOS *Rare Species*

    Cattleya trianae 'A.C. Burrage' AM/AOS *Rare Species*

    SKU:8060M/25

    Cattleya trianae 'A.C. Burrage' AM/AOS 

    This special cultivar was named after the first president of the American Orchid Society. Our plants are tissue cultured from the original plant granted an Award of Merit from the AOS in 1939 and from the RHS in 1948.  Blooms are a soft lavender-pink with purple and yellow coloring on the lip.  Excellent round form and good substance.  This item is not often available so get yours while you can!

    This is a good grower with sturdy foliage.  Requires standard cattleya conditions, meaning bright indirect light and a day/night temperature change. We are offering plants established in 2.5" pots.  We expect these to be flowering size in approximately 3 years.

  6. 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.

  7. Laelia Coronet

    Laelia Coronet

    SKU:9635/25

    (cinnabarina x harpophylla)

    We have remade this antique primary cross with select parents. Sprays of bright orange star-shaped blooms with lighter yellow and cream trumpet shaped lips. Very showy with a blooming season just right for winter shows! Very narrow, upright foliage that will blush if grown in bright light. We have found these do best in long-lasting but fast draining media so they are not disturbed too often. Can also be grown in a rock or gravel based media, and possibly on mounts.

    Plants are currently growing in 2.5" clay pots in well draining mix.  First flowering can be expected as early as this winter.

  8. Lc. Floralia's Azul 'Sandra' AM/AOS x Cattleya amethystoglossa coerulea 'Blue Sky'

    Lc. Floralia's Azul 'Sandra' AM/AOS x Cattleya amethystoglossa coerulea 'Blue Sky'

    SKU:10058/25

    Lc. Floralia's Azul 'Sandra' AM/AOS x Cattleya amethystoglossa coerulea 'Blue Sky'

    (We are showing a photo of what we expect flowers to appear like).

    A new blue cattleya offering.  The first parent is a free flower compact grower with oversized blooms.  Lovely sweet fragrance.  The species amethystoglossa will add a cluster-style bloom habit and hopefully some blue and purple petal freckles. These are showing lush green foliage with semi-bifoliate growth habit.  Expected to mainly be winter blooms but there could be some surprises!

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

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
