    Default Cherry Suisse

    Hello everyone,

    About a year ago, I discovered that I can grow orchids without killing them! I am from the south, and as you may know, we southerners tend to overwater everything. Since then, I have about 15 different types and enjoy them all..I seem to like the wierd ones the best.

    Recently, I purchased a small Cherry Suisse. It is currently in a 3" container of nothing but fir bark, its in a window sill and gets about 4 hours morning sun then indirect sunlight the rest of the day.

    My question is if it is getting the right amount of sunlight and is it in the right planting mix?

    Hello and welcome to OrchidTalk.

    Rhyncattleanthe Cherry Suisse (Cattlianthe Chocolate Drop x Rhyncholaeliocattleya Oconee) culture from Orchid Wiz:
    Rth. Cherry Suisse is composed of species of which 100% take high light, 45% take medium light and 3% take partial sun light. Grow this hybrid in bright indirect light conditions. It may be tolerant of dappled light conditions.

    Rth. Cherry Suisse is composed of species of which 100% take warm temperatures, 57% take cool temperatures and 40% take hot temperatures. Grow this hybrid in cool to warm conditions, or 58°F to 75°F at night. It may be tolerant of hot (75°F to 85°F) night temperatures.

    50%-60% humidity. Mature plants MUST dry out between waterings. Grow in a pot with a porous, free-draining media. Fertilize weekly, weakly (one quarter to half the normal dose). Common media: fir bark, tree-fern fiber, expanded clay, lava rock, charcoal or a combination.

    Good luck!

    cheers,
