    Default Pot. fairyland, care info please

    I was given a small start plant of Pot. fairyland and I'm not sure what it needs for care. Any tips on temps, humidity and light?
    I tried to find info but mostly found pics and one article that said this plant had been reclassified as a catt, is that true? should I change the label?

    When it was originally registered it was registered as SC (Sophrocattleya) Fairyland but is now Cattlianthe Fairyland.

    Give it Cattleya culture. Bright light, some sun should be given to the plants, with no direct sun in the middle of the day. This means an east, shaded south (as with a sheer curtain) or west window in the home. Temps 55-85
    Humidity should be 50 to 80 percent.

    There's only one Cattleya alliance hybrid called Fairyland, so I think we can assume that's what you have. As Ron said, it should be labeled Sc. (Sophrocattleya) or Ctt. (Cattlianthe) depending on whether you're living in 2002 or 2013. Somwhere in between it would have been Gsl. (Guarisophleya) if you prefer. Someone was confused when they called it Pot. (Potinara), no matter what year. General Cattleya alliance culture is appropriate. Probably a pink to yellow pastel flower about 7cm across on a moderate sized plant.

    Is sunlight necessary or is florescent light ok? I have a East window but it only get a couple hours of light each morning, the rest of the day its quite dim. I have a plant stand I can keep her on though.
    The blooms are super pale yellow with a slight blush, like this Name:  28465.jpg

    I have never grown under florescent but I assume it could be done. Keep it toward the center of the cart and fairly close to the bulb.
