Cattleya Orchid Care

Cattleya
Growers Information


Light
Requirements:

2000 – 3300 footcandles

Out of all of the orchids commercially grown for sale, only Vandas surpass the Cattleya in light requirements to bloom abundantly. As a general rule, give plenty of bright light!


Temperature:

70 – 90 degrees
F. daytime, 60 – 65 degrees F. night.


Humidity:

40 – 65 % relative
humidity is ideal


Notes:

While
Cattleyas adapt well to less than ideal conditions and therefore make good “beginner” orchids, their high light requirements are sometimes difficult to achieve in the home. Be sure to place them where they will receive abundant light with direct sun striking them only very early in the morning. Allow them to dry slightly between waterings.
