Cattleya intermedia orlata 'Sendai' SM/JOGA

Cattleya intermedia orlata 'Sendai' SM/JOGA - Plant photo by Richard LindbergThe genus Cattleya (C) contains 53 species from tropical South America. They do best in a medium that has good drainage and dry between watering. Give them a sort dryer rest after blooming.

Cattleya intermedia grows from Sao Paulo Brazil to Uruguay and Argentina near the ocean or streams. It is fragrant, cool to warm growing and needs bright light and blooms in summer.

This is the second of the plants from Steve Christoffersen. I'm not sure what I was thinking when I mounted it like that. It hasn't started to attach so it will not be a problem to redo the mount.
