    Default Blc. Mahina Yahiro

    A lovely first bloom plant for me. It has a nice fragrance. For some reason, this plant waited until this year to bloom. Its 'sister' plant from the same flask bloomed over two years ago, but only two bloom at a time. Maybe this one is catching up? hehehe....

    Grow this particular Brassolaeliocattleya (Brassavola x Cattleya x Laelia) like a cattleya. Here is a copy & past of our growing habits for all of our cattleya type orchids:

    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.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Look at that armful of flowers! A great show! It's beautiful Bruce; I wish I could sniff it!

    There's an idea. Why don't you just go write up a little orchid fragrance code to be posted with pictures. Would be a forum first! LOL
