Rlc. Chomthong Delight 4" FS
Rlc. Chomthong Delight
(Haadyai Delight X Chunyeah)
Here is a Cattleya hybrid with shapely, 51/2" yellow flowers. Plants are flowering size (FS) and many are in sheath (a sheath is the leaf-like growth that protects buds as they develop - a sheath doesn't guarantee flowering, but it's a good sign).
A Rhyncholaelia (Rlc.) is a man-made genus that combines the genes and, therefore the features of the natural genera, Cattleya, Laelia and Rhyncholaelia. They are referred to as "Cattleyas" generally.
As with most Cattleyas, Chomthong Delight prefers bright light, and nights of 60 degrees and above. Days can range into the 80's and 90's, but be careful to avoid direct hot sun as the leaves can scorch or burn. Allow the plant to dry somewhat between watering, but water a fertilize regularly, especially during the Summer growing months.
LIMITED! FLOWERING SIZE, BUT NOT CURRENTLY IN BUD OR FLOWER.
