Beautifully formed 4.5" flowers 2-3 in number are produced in Spring-Summer. Like most Cattleyas, the plants would like bright indirect light with temperatures between about 65 and 85 degrees night to day. Water and fertilize regularly year-round using a liquid or water soluble fertilizer once a month. Allow the medium to dry a bit between water applications. As the plants become larger, reduce the frequency of both as the days become shorter, darker and cooler.
LIMITED! NOT BLOOMING SIZE, NOT IN BUD OR BLOOM!!!
GROWER'S NOTE: Most Cattleyas can easily tolerate and even acclimate to temperatures a bit lower or higher than those listed as ideal. They can even sustain substantial changes for a short term. Here are a couple of tips for extremes: for cold - keep the plants drier; for hot shade where possible and wet with good air movement.
