Cattleya lueddemanniana 'Springtime' x Cattleya lueddemanniana 'Mendenhall'
This grex was made using the darkest forms of this spring blooming species that we have in our collection. Growth habit is very short and almost sprawling which makes it perfect for basket or mount culture. Faint purple freckles are evident on the low growing leaves.
Growing Suggestion- This species needs very bright, indirect light (not for windowsill growers) and should be repotted only on new growths, when necessary.
Plants are growing well in 2.5" pots
