Rlc. Focus Taiwan 'Persimmon' 4" FS
Rlc. Focus Taiwan 'Persimmon'
(Chunyeah X C. Tainan City)
'Persimmon' is an appropriate name for this variety of the Rhyncholaeliocattleya (whew! abbv. Rlc) Focus Taiwan.
Like most Cattleyas, Persimmon will benefit from bright light, warm-ish nights (55-65 degrees) and regular water and fertilizer. Also, like most Cattleyas, they should be allowed to dry slightly between waterings.
NOTE: "bright light". Many people ask if direct sunlight is either necessary or bad. In short, if you are growing in a house or apartment choose the brightest place you can,but be careful to avoid placing the plant close to a south,to west facing window as sunlight through glass can burn the leaves. Burned leaves do not heal.
NOTE: "FS", flowering size does not mean mature. First blooms may be fewer and/or smaller than those produced by a larger, more mature plant.
