(Cattleya percivalianaLaelia anceps)

LIGHT
moderate to bright light
WATER
allow to dry between watering
HUMIDITY
50% is optimum
TEMPERATURE
BLOOM SEASON

A primary hybrid between the Mexican species Laelia anceps and the Venezuelan species Cattleya perciviliana. As expected the form of both the plant and flower reflects a balance between the parents' traits: the flowers shape and substance resemble Laelia anceps while Cattleya perciviliana imparts fuller flowers and a shorter spike habit. Temperature Tolerant. February blooming.

Cheryl P. earned Best in Show at the 2015 NVOS Annual Show in March as well as an AOS/HCC scoring 78 points in March of 2013.
