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 5-inch clay pot. There are three pseudobulbs and the plant stands eight inches above the pot.
