We are looking forward to seeing large 15cm white flowers with red, purple lips. They should be very fragrant and we hope to see 4 or more flowers per stem.
Cattleya, and their extended family of Orchids, originate from Central America. Sometimes known as windowsill orchids, Cattleya are a tolerant, easy to grow, indoor orchid; who enjoy a well lit, cool-warm position in your home (although we recommend avoiding too much direct sunlight in the heat of the day, morning or afternoon will be fine). They are a pleasure to own with their frequently large, showy flowers.
What you will eventually see flowering will be a blending of the two parents. In some cases we are able to provide you with a photo of the progeny, however please bear in mind that variations in colour, etc are expected with seedling crosses.
