Cattleya Hybrids Blooming
The cattleya group is known for large group of flowering plants, showy, and sometimes fragrant flowers. Their presence is in most areas of the world and they are highly adaptive as a species. Most cattleya produces one new pseudobulb and produce flowers the same growing season. Some of the hybrids might produce two blooms annually.
The plant age is about 12-14 months with plant size about 15-25 cm. They are grown in 3.5 inches pot and time to flowering about 3-4 months. The plants will be in mature stage ready to bloom when the environment is suitable.
The number of flowers increases as the plant ages. First-bloom seedlings often have one to five flowers per spray. Mature plants can produce 15 or more flowers per inflorescence. The flowers last six to eight weeks.
Humidity: Water is the main component in plant cell (about 90%). They use it for photosynthesis, as a solvent, to controlling the temperature and etc. Most of Orchids grow well in 60-80% relative humidity. They use water in Co2 fixation period. But don’t make their root too much wet.
Light: The factors that affect the growth of orchids are light intensity, duration, and wavelength. No direct sunlight. 50-60% shaded net is recommended.
Temperature: 25 – 30 ◦C at daytime and 15 – 20 ◦C at nighttime.
Plants Nutrition: Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium, Sulphur, Iron, Boron, Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Molybdenum, and Chlorine.
Time: Water them at 6.00-8.00 am.
Frequency: Depends on your humidity and planting material. 1-2 times a day in dry or hot period.
Quality of water is important. Watering them a lot with good quality water, less watering when you have poor quality water. This concept should be in your mind.
The nutrient absorption of orchid’s root depends on the amount of carbohydrate in leaves. And The absorption of Nitrate will increase with the amount of carbohydrate in root. When the orchids don’t have enough light or the temperature is high, you can add some sugar in fertilizer to increase the carbohydrate in plant.
When you mix crystal fertilizer, you should add wetting agent or spreader but not Calcium (The solution will precipitate). For medium to mature size plant, you should use balanced grade alternate with high P fertilizer grade (15-30-15 or 10-52-17 grade). In dry period, use balanced grade for 3 weeks and alternate with high P fertilizer grade for 1 week. In humid period, use balanced grade for 2 weeks and alternate with high P fertilizer grade for 2 weeks or 28-14-35 grade for all over the year.
And for the mature plant that is easily to get rot. You should use balanced grade for 2 weeks and alternate with high K fertilizer grade (16-21-27 or 13-27-27 grade) for 2 weeks in dry period and for humid period, use balanced grade for 2 weeks and alternate with high K fertilizer grade for 3 weeks. (TIP: high Nitrogen amount can affect the size of stem and length of spike).
Flowering depends on the amount of carbohydrate and hormone in plants. The flowering of tropical orchids can be controlled by following methods.
- Fertilizer, this is the most famous method in Thailand, we use 13-27-27 fertilizer grade for Cattleya hybrids.
- Cutting the young inflorescence
- Slow cutting inflorescence
- Controlling the environment
- Cutting the root.
- Dividing the front pseudobulb

Normally in Thailand, we use coconut husk or charcoal as an Orchid media. But bark, sphagnum moss, perlite and cinder are also recommended. It depends on your climate and humidity.
Orchids are air plants. They don’t like a compact media or soil. They need some space between their root to be able to breath. They don’t like too much water either. If you see some leaves turning yellow, take it out. It will stop spreading. This can be caused by over watering or lack of light. You can check it by touching the media. And indirect sunlight is a must.
