Easy Orchids – Cattleya Intermedia x Brassolaeliocattleya Chinese Jade
Author: adminNo Comments
Blooming, Care and Culture, Classification, Growing Indoors
I define “easy” orchids as those that can be grown indoors in mild climates in homes that have the heating on during the daytime in winter.
This new as yet unnamed hybrid has the classic shape of flared sepals nicely balanced by the proportions of the lip and the coloring so often sought among this type. The large, fragrant blooms appear during the summer and fall months, with one or two arising on a short spike from the newly completed pseudobulb. The blooms will last for up to three weeks. Combining three genera: Brassavola, Laelia, and Cattleya. This hybrid performs best in intermediate temperatures and good light. Rest the plant by keeping it dry when not in active growth.
Flower Size: 5 inches (12cm) across
Plant Height: 1 foot (30cm)
Pot Size: 6 inches (15cm)
