Cattleya Care Guide

Cattleya orchids are very sturdy and can take a lot of abuse from those who tend to forget to water. They are also tolerant of several temperature ranges.

  Light

This plant prefers bright indirect light, but can tolerate medium indirect light. Plants grown under ideal light will have apple green leaves and plants which are not getting enough light will have dark green leaves. Learn more about light here 

 Watering

In Coconut Husk medium water retention is more compared to Pine Bark, so plants in Coconut Husk may require once in 2-3 days watering compared to 1-2 days watering in Pine Bark.  Medium may dry faster or slower depending on the weather conditions. So always touch and feel the medium, only when partially dry water the plant.  Learn more about watering here

Fertilizing

 Fertilizing your orchid regularly provides it with the nutrients it needs for optimal health, immunity and vigorous blooming. Weekly once with Bio-20 or Basfoliar 19:19:19 for growth and rooting. Once a month with Basfoliar 13-40-13. Learn more about fertilizing here

 

 

Cattleya aurantiaca also called as Guarianthe aurantiaca is a species of orchid native to South America. Miniature Cattleya species, These plants can flower in as small as a 3" pot and when reaching specimen size can have multiple canes in flowers with clusters of blooms per growth. The outer and inner whorls are almost the same size and shape, and the inner whorl flakes have a tendency to bend forward. As a result, the flowers do not open completely and it happens that some of the clones self-pollinate without opening. The spotted lip is almost the same size and shape as the petals of the outer and inner whorls. Easy to grow and very colorful and fun! Old leaves of plants have small black dots, the new growths do not have these.

Please refer plant pictures for size reference.
