Cattleya bicolor 4N
A tall, slender growing Brazilian species that loves bright light and warm temperatures. Clusters of waxy green blooms with bright fuchsia lips appear above bifoliate foliage. These seedlings are bred from our tetraploid 'Mendenhall-Beta' parent and are expected to have heavy substance and clear, bright coloring.
We are offering seedlings growing in 3.5" pots with open, well draining media. Plants are Near Blooming Size and expected to flower for the first time within 12-18 months. We have found that this species does not take well to over watering, especially during the winter months. Our suggestion for these seedlings is to water as soon as media is dry in the summer and growing months. During the late fall and into winter, water much lighter and alternate with misting.
