Cattleya schilleriana is a prized species native to Brazil. It is bifoliate meaning two leaves emerge from each pseudobulb instead of one. The blooms are a lovely brown-pink with white spotting. Compact plant. This is blooming size and fragrant. 

Photos are representative of the blooms you can expect but color may vary. Will not arrive in bloom. 

 

CATTLEYA CARE INFO:

Potting mix: Coarse orchid bark. Repot when pot bound in Spring. Benefits from additional air holes in the pot.

Light: Bright indirect - partial direct light. South or West facing preferred.

Water: Water frequently in hot months when media is fully dry, decrease in cold months. Quick drying is key to preventing root rot in Cattleyas. Water around the perimeter of the pot to prevent center from staying too wet.

Temp: Warm-hot (60F min night, 85F max day).

Humidity: 40-80%, high humidity must be accompanied by good air circulation.

Fertilizing: 1/2 strength urea-free fertilizer, every other watering as new roots and leaves emerge. Decrease to 1/4 strength in winter.
