Potinara Shinfong Little Sun FS 4"
Potinara Shinfong Little Sun
(C. Golden Girl X Pot. Taida Love Star)
Here is another bright mini-Cattleya that is also very complex - comprised of 22 species in a variety of genetic percentages. Plants have 5-6 pseudobulbs.
Flowers are about 2.5" across, borne in clusters of 5-6 held above the foliage, It is a Spring bloomer. Like most Cattleya relative, Little Sun likes "a lotta sun". Ha ha! Not hot direct though! It also like nights around 60-65 degrees and days in the mid 80's. You should allow a slight drying between waterings, but should water and fertilize regularly.
FLOWERING SIZE, BUT NOT CURRENTLY IN BUD OR FLOWER!
