Cattleya Orchidglade

Cattleya Orchidglade - Plant photo by Richard LindbergThe genus Cattleya (C) contains quite a few species from tropical South America. They do best in a medium that has good drainage and dry between watering. Give them a short dryer rest after blooming.

This plant is in sphagnum over peanuts in a 4 1/2-inch clay pot. There are three pseudobulbs and it stands nine inches above the pot.

Cattleya walkeriana x Cattleya aurantiaca.
