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" mesh baskets and chunky tree fern media. 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 mist heavily 3 to 4 times per week during the winter, and daily during the warmer summer months. Plants are ready for larger containers on next growth but should not be repotted until then.
