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 labiata var. semi-alba sp. is a species native to northeastern Brazil. This selection of labiata has lovely blue lip with very light lavender tinted flowers. Cattleya labiata is seen grown on tree trunks as well as rocks where they are protected from direct sun. Plants were imported bare-root, have given new roots in pine bark.

Cattleya labiata are usually grown in shallow pots or baskets filled with a very thick, loose, quickly drying base, allowing the roots to dry quickly after watering. It is recommended to use smaller pots sufficient for 1-2 years growth, because the substrate in larger pots stays wet for too long after watering. The result of not sufficiently fast drying roots can be their rotting.

The Labiata plants from from tropical, seasonal zones of rain forests near the coast are large, and their flowers are often considered the most beautiful with a pure pink, very wrinkled lip. The plants from the zone of tropical deciduous forests are usually larger and form larger and darker flowers than those from other zones. The plants from the bush zone can be very small. Sometimes referred to as a miniature Cattleya labiata, they have small, dark scarlet-purple flowers.
