    Default C. warneri

    fma. tipo x fma. orlata





    Hailing from Brazil, Cattleya warneri was first discovered in the 1830s but not officially described until 1862. It shares a number of similarities with C. labiata and was long considered a variety, but has gradually become accepted as a legitimate species. Both C. labiata and C. warneri bloom from characteristic double sheaths, and produce large lavender flowers with relatively narrow petals (although well-shaped forms exist of each). C. warneri, however, grows during the fall/winter months and blooms in the late spring, while C. labiata grows during the spring/summer months and blooms in the fall. C. warneri has unusually broad leaves and mature plants can produce up to five 6-8" flowers on an inflorescence.

    Cattleya warneri is not dificult to grow but has seasonal requirements that run contrary to those of the other cattleya species. It typically starts growth in the late fall and the new growths mature over the winter and early spring months. During this time, sunlight and temperatures should be maximized, which can be a somewhat difficult proposition in the more northern climates. Buds start to appear in the spring, and at this time high light and high temperatures should be avoided lest the buds "cook" in the sheaths. The large, fragrant flowers appear in the late spring to early summer, and the plant rests for a short time afterwards.
