Cattleya luteola - part one

Cattleya luteola - Plant photo by Richard LindbergPicture taken two years agoCattleya luteola grows in Brazil, Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia, in lowland tropical rain forests. It needs a dry winter rest.

I got this miniature Cattleya almost exactly two years ago. (That is a 3-inch pot) I repotted into limestone pieces and a bit of pea gravel as top dressing and have done nothing else with it, moving it from place to place. I didn't give it the attention it deserved.

The plant has grown quite a bit and has beautiful deep green foliage. It has not bloomed.

If you are growing beautiful deep green foliage, all you will grow is beautiful deep green foliage.

I plan to unpot the plant then divide and mount the pieces. I will find a brighter, dryer place for the mounts. Details tomorrow.
