Cattleya aurantiaca 'Orangeade' X self (intentional)
species - Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica
These are the smallest flowers in the genus Cattleya, but they make up for it by being some of the brightest. Their 1" flowers appear during the Winter months in clusters of up to 10. The plants are medium size and compact and prefer bright indirect light with temperatures of around 60 to 80 degrees night to day although in nature they tolerate both lower and higher. Water and fertilize regularly especially while in growth, but allow a bit of drying between applications.
Generally easy growing, these are about 2 seasons from first flower.
NOTE: we've added the term "intentional" to the description to indicate that these were not random selfings. There are populations in the northern range of the species that are self-pollenating- the flowers do not open well.
LIMITED! NOT BLOOMING SIZE, NOT IN BUD OR BLOOM!!
