    Default Diacattleya

    Hello, everyone.

    I am the proud, new owner of a Diacattleya Chantilly Lace 'Twinkle' HCC/AOS, but I have no idea how to care for it.

    Do I treat it like a typical Cattelya?

    Pretty close to typical Catt conditions. The Diacrium (Caularthron) bicornutum parent likes it just a bit hotter brighter and drier than an average Catt, but not enough to make much difference. Mostly, make sure media gets a little drier before watering especially in cooler cloudier weather, and give it the brightest spot among typical Catts.
