    I have 1. Actually, I have 3 but that's a story for another day but will tell you how much my wife liked it.
    Camera's have a very difficult time duplicating the actual color assuming yours is the same because mine is what I call a "hot magenta".
    The color in the pic above is more red to my eye.
    Nicely done regardless what the real color is!

    Hi Kelly— it is in the cattleya family, so it likes bright light (not direct sunlight, but bright), and likes to dry out or nearly so between waterings. I give mine the same humidity (50-70%) as the rest of my orchids. Temps anywhere between 55-90, doesn’t seem to care about Day/night differences. Fertilizer weekly Would be good, but mine gets it more like once a month. Weak fertilizer...remember in their home their only fertilizer is whatever debris, bird dropping etc are washed down when it rains. I use a bark mix formulated for cattleyas, but i think any bark mix would be ok. Good luck!!
