The Flower Size ranges from 4 Inches to 8 Inches.
Growing and Caring Tips for Plants
The cattleya orchids like bright light. They can even be acclimated to some direct sunlight, although keep from direct summer sunlight. They will not flower without plenty of light. In the right light conditions, the leaves will be apple green. Darker leaves might indicate too little light, while yellow or brown leaves might indicate too much direct sunlight.
Cattleyas are sympodial orchids that grow from an underground rhizome. They typically send up new pseudo bulbs in the spring. During the growing season, water heavily, but do not allow them to sit in water. Cut water back when the flowers begin to emerge from their sheaths--water in these sheaths will rot the immature flowers. A well-watered cattleya will have fat lead pseudo bulbs.
During the growing season, fertilize with a weak orchid fertilizer weekly (weakly weekly, as the growers say). During the rest period, fertilize every other week.
Most cattleya produces one new flush of growth annually, and each new pseudo bulb should produce flowers that same growing season, often in late summer or winter. Some of the hybrids might produce two blooms annually. When a plant goes into flower, reduce watering to avoid accidentally rotting the flowers. Emerging cattleya flowers are protected by a thin sheath that emerges from the centre of the leaf.
Potting and re-potting:
Cattleya grows by means of a branching, creeping rhizome with thick, clinging roots. Re-potting is stressful, and a plant will usually take a season to recover, so only re-pot when necessary. They will do well in most orchid mixes, including pink bark, clay pellets, perlite, charcoal, or any well-draining medium. When re-potting a cattleya, make sure there is enough room for the rhizome to produce at least two new pseudo bulbs before it hits the edge of the pot. Typically, re-potting is done in spring, at the beginning of the growing season. Cattleya can also be slab-mounted on tree fern or logs.
Cattleya is not difficult plant, and their flowers are incredibly rewarding. Depending on the species, they may produce just a few showy flowers or bunches of smaller, waxy flowers. Not all cattleya flowers are fragrant, so ask your grower if that's a priority. The biggest mistake most people make with cattleya is not supplying enough light for the plant to bloom well and/or over watering. Watch the pseudo bulbs—a plump lead pseudo bulb indicates a well-hydrated plant.
