Cattleya Mango Spice 3" FS
Cattleya Mango Spice
(California Apricot X Beaufort)
This is a miniature Cattleya plant with relatively large (2.25-3") flowers in bright red-orange to yellow colors as shown. Results will vary though because this is a seedling cross. Flowers are usually produced one per growth, but as the plant matures, it may produce multiple blooming size growths at a time.
NOTE: The parents were once known as Slc. California Apricot and Sc. Beaufort, but both have been re-classified as Cattleyas, hence the hybrid name.
Mango Spice is a cool tolerant cross that is genetically 50% Sophronitis coccinea so nights in the 50's with bright indirect light will be fine. Because the plants and pots are small, be careful to avoid allowing them to become either bone dry or soggy and add a liquid or water soluble fertilizer to the watering regimen regularly.
